Fr. James Martin boils with righteous ire.
That “shithole” comment really got his goat.
Haiti is Paradise. Hey, Trump: take note!
Haiti is all to which we can aspire.
Haiti fulfills the spirit’s vast desire.
Haiti is like a gorgeous ship afloat
On oceans we approach by asymptote.
Haiti’s Utopia — so let’s admire!
Fr. James Martin served a mission there.
He is informed and boundlessly sincere
In his esteem for Haiti, where the air
You breathe is wine — or, anyhow, good beer.
To call the place a “shithole” isn’t fair.
So why are all those Haitians coming here?
