A double inverse Venetian sonnet

[Re-posted from today's post on my other blog, Jim's Little Photo and Poem Place]  

Ya hear, eons past,
two nuns, a priest, a gopher,
died, went to Heaven
Met St. Peter at the gate
Eighty-plus, four April Fools
Haha, folks, that's all.
Got their Obama Care. Now
deadline came and went
Double inverse Venetian
sonnet--nonesuch, April Fools!

Today my double tanka is linked with Mama Zen at the Real Toads Word Count

Mom Zee's command:
- "Today, I would like you to write a double inverse Venetian sonnet using the traditional hexatonic goatameter. Your piece must include two nuns, a priest, a gopher, and a space / time paradox.  Please address either universal health care or twerking in the volta . . . in 37 words or less.
- April Fools!"

- I did pretty well even with the joke.  My 'Word Count:' 1 (title), 24 (verse one), 20 (second verse) (thats less than 37 per tanka so it was fudged a bit for a total of 45 words)
