Salvator Ecclesiae

Is wise Pope Francis soon to save the day?
Guys, there are better ways to spend your hope.
Not only is the poor old guy a dope:
He’s under this corrupted age’s sway
Completely. I’m not saying he’ll betray
The Church in ways with which we cannot cope.
He’s not the first or gravest bonehead pope.
The Church is old. There’s no new game to play.
Yet still, to think he’ll change things for the better,
This follower of every stylish trend,
This fool who wastes the spirit and the letter,
This wimp who with the Zeitgeist won’t contend,
That makes you something worse than Satan’s debtor:
That’s idiocy no one can defend.

–Tom Riley
