Tons of Thomist

 

Today the bonehead Shea will lecture us
Concerning the Angelic Doctor. Hey,
There’s no one quite as confident as Shea,
Despite an ignorance that’s obvious!
When he screws up, you shouldn’t make a fuss.
His errors fit the mindset of the day.
Your truths he wishes airily away.
He won’t be harried by the studious.
Aquinas you have read for many years
While Shea has chosen endlessly to fatten
His mind on current hatreds, fleeting fears?
Your erudition he will swiftly flatten
With some cliché he keeps between his ears.
It doesn’t matter that he knows no Latin.
