Bastards

Bastards

 

 

Pope Pius called for swords — and bold Don John,
the Bastard, rose and set himself to fight,
Of course you’ve heard the tale from Chesterton
and know the Christians’ chances were so slight
that many princes hoarded only fright
in their cold hearts. The Bastard loyally
did what was then unpopular — and right.
The Blessed Virgin gave him victory!
Does Francis call for swords today? Not he!
He orders folks to let invaders in.
And look: Frau Merkel hastens to agree!
Self-defense is in this account a sin.
Thus is the European future shaped:
Muslims will rule — and German girls be raped.
