Gaia’s Cultic Wisdom

Gaia’s Cultic Wisdom

 
Pope Francis is the type who worships science—
Or was until he made his latest dumb
Pronouncement. Now he’s total in reliance
On Gaia’s cultic wisdom. Me, I’m numb
At how this aging infant sucks his thumb
In public and proclaims stupidity
As doctrine. Can’t he do the minimum
In self-embarrassment – for you and me?
The idiocy uttered currently,
Of course, will fade eventually away.
He can’t get saints and angels to agree
With the vain salivation of today.
Still, he’s amongst my soul’s most gnawing stressors.
What’s worse, he’s undermining his successors.
