Apology

The Apology

Heap-big Bergoglio, him apologize.
Like Pocahontas Warren in her day,
Him Injun now, in ways of old earth wise.
Him got bright headdress ready for display.
In harmony with all, him never say
Anything in defense of priests who went
Before him. Them defunct – and need to pay.
Piss on them graves and him give fierce assent.
Church heap-big tent indeed – and in this tent
Is only space for POC and queer.
All others need to grovel and repent.
Bergoglio, him condemn year after year
All European Christians of the past.
Him preaching, though, forever candy-assed.
