A Pension

The Church of England wants to pay me a pension. I thought they might. I feel a little odd about it- but I paid my money into the pot when I was in their employment and I reckon I've every right to take it out again now-  and- on the whole- for all the thrashing about I've done- I don't believe I've ever been an enemy of true religion.

A. No, but...

B. Shut it, boy. Just shut it.
