For whom the bells toll

O pastor sir, you're out of line.
Loud church bells at dawn? Pay a fine.
The townsfolk have vowed,
That your clangs are too loud,
From now on play soft - after 9!

Yahoo News 16/08/07: A Dutch priest has been fined 5,000 euros (3,382 pounds) for ringing his church bells too loudly in the morning. Get the story here

I guess one can't always be too religious early in the mornings :D
