Pasta Lord – a poem

Published April 6th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

Hi. So, I’m new to Pastafarianism, but I’m finding the transition easy enough. I was eating some awesome ravioli the other day, and it occurred to me to make an FSM-inspired poem for National Poetry Writing Month. I thought I’d share.

—Judd, Philippines


Pasta Lord

Slippery tendrils lash above the sea

In a frantic manner to save what be

A crew of pirates, stranded, latching on

To his noodly appendages a’dawn.


His Noodliness holds two spheres of meat

Muddled in the tangle of pasta, neat.

In Him, I find true mirth; my solace, joy!

The Pasta Lord, He taketh me—ahoy!


He promises a Kingdom grand, so long

As we abide by Captain Mosey’s song:

Yon, beer and ale spurt out of mountaintops;

A stripper factory that does not stop.


Rejoice, for He has boiled for our sins!

And now his wheaty sauce runs ‘neath our skins.

My Pasta Lord who flies with wholegrain love,

Invisible in the heavens above.

    That was wonderful, Judd!
    May His Noodliness touch you His appendage, and your strippers be the best lap dancers!
    But I have a question: no-problems-for a pastafarian in a nation as devout as the Philippines?

      I get a few “concerned” comments here and there from friends, but it’s nothing too serious — just the usual Christianly kind; shoving Jesus down my throat and stuff. I’m used to it.

      I’m thinking of going to a counter-protest with a Pastafarian headdress on and see how the bishops react. I’m the only Pastafarian I know here. I expect to be called Satan’s spawn and nothing less.

        Best wishes, our brother-in-FSM!

    Arr! Certainly the stuff of epic sea shanties!

    Awesome. Now who should we have performing this spiritual hymn.

    should it be the Boston Parmesanic Orchestra?

    or the Kitchen Tablenackle Choir?

    Truly Inspired.

    In the name of the Pasta, and of the Sauce, and of the Garlic Toast, RAmen.

    I was just looking for this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the Google’s problem that doesn’t rank this type of informative web sites closer to the top. Normally the top websites are full of garbage.
