Advice To The Cardinals... Sep 30th, 2013 - Poem by James Bredin

Listen: all priests should have wives before they are ordained,
And these changed new rules should be quickly arranged,
Someone up high; tell the pope that this is what we need,
Just change the present ridiculous rules and we’re all agreed.


And females should be allowed to be priests, bishops and popes,
I realize that right now this is too much to get up our hopes,
But the church needs to change and the sooner the better,
If I thought it would do any good; I’d sent a nice letter.


And pedophile priests should be dispatched to the nearest jail,
And kept there for life after a civil trial; without fail,
And find out if someone can prove a heaven or a hell,
Because many good Christians are saying farewell.
