Speedy Compassion



The Holy Father wants us all to know
that he is on the side of those who bled.
Side with the bombers? No, indeed. Instead,
he’ll make a real bold move and feel real low
about these needless deaths. Yea, he will go
to greater lengths, decrying creatures led
by ideologies that peaceniks dread
to target innocents! His anger’s slow,
but his compassion’s really, really speedy.
In Public Statement Land, he aims to please.
But now he’s spoken out, so don’t be greedy
for further Vatican banalities!
Europe: return to rescuing the needy!
Belgium: admit more Muslim refugees!
