HIERARCHY DEMANDS... MAR 31ST,2013


HIERARCHY DEMANDS... Mar 31st,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

The hierarchy demanded that this scandal should fade away,
And that we the faithful should shut up and have little to say,
But this is something big that can’t be swept under the mat,
We just can’t forget that it even happened and that’s that.




Vatican world-wide cover-up that no one suspected,
It’s the elite hierarchy that wants to remain protected,
They have mansions, dressed in red with tiny little skullcaps,
A major reformation could leave them nothing but scraps.




And what became of all those pedophile clergy who were caught?
Did they go to jail and stay there or were they assigned a blind spot?
Is it still going on and why does it seem to have vanished?
We never read or heard that the pedophile priests had been banished.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
