Shea Strikes Out Again

Shea Strikes Out Again

 
“That isn’t Pachamama – as you claim.
It is Our Lady of the Amazon!”
So says a practiced liar, Shea by name—
Who with the idol wants to get it on.
Minerva, maiden goddess, sneered at Shea
When he presumed to offer her his smile.
And Venus simply wished his ass away.
He missed her standards, clearly, by a mile.
But Pachamama? She’s a homely thing—
And maybe, therefore, ripe for Fat Boy’s wooing.
He’s king-sized – and can thus claim he’s a king.
Plus, he’s a screwball. “Makes me tops at screwing!”
But Pachamama, Shea, wants you to know
That, though she’s savage, she won’t sink so low.

Those Who Will Not Bow

Those Who Will Not Bow

 
“We’re resolved. We will not bow today
To your idol. And further we say
We will never give in.
We abhor such a sin!”
“You’re a bunch of damn Nazis!” says Shea.

Confessions of a Contrary Idolater

Confessions of a Contrary Idolater

 
Minerva I could fall upon both knees
To serve. And Venus? Oh, without a doubt!
Juno’s soft eyes could make me sing and shout.
Diana I would truly aim to please.
Yes: I can see the forest – and the trees.
The team of goddesses I rave about.
Commands of individuals I’d flout
Never, though moved by higher verities.
Thus toward idolatry, I must confess,
I’m much inclined. For goddess types I ache.
If they seek willing slaves, then I cry yes—
Although of course I know that’s a mistake
Certain to cost me rather more than less.
But Pachamama? Sheesh! Give me a break!

Roma Locuta Est

Roma Locuta Est

 
Andean deities must be respected.
Don’t question this! The Pope hath made it clear!
No irony in him hath been detected:
Andean deities must be respected!
Your exclusivity will be corrected,
You Christian jerks! Oh, yield to holy fear:
Andean deities must be respected!
Don’t question this. The Pope hath made it clear.

Slight Revision to Official Catholic Piety

A Slight Revision to Official Catholic Piety

 
Deinde dicit discipulo ecce mater tua et ex illa hora accepit eam discipulus in sua.

 
Pachamama, she yo mama.
Virgin Mary ain’t no mo.
Seize yo chance to hump a llama.
Pachamama, she yo mama!
Mister Pope, he love his drama,
Love his dog-and-pony show.
Pachamama, she yo mama.
Virgin Mary ain’t no mo.

Restoration Era

Restoration Era

 
Pachamama will now be restored,
Says the Pope. Inner jaguars have roared.
For his reasons don’t search.
When he whores out the Church,
He intends for the Church to stay whored.

Preferred Idol

Preferred Idol

 
In the Tiber went burgeoning hope.
Oh, a crime of unbearable scope!
Christian thieves, you name’s mud!
You threw into the flood
Pachamama, adored by the Pope!

Into the Tiber

Into the Tiber

 

 
Into the Tiber, Christians, with this crap!
The Tiber may indeed just belch it out.
Bergoglio’s cuddling idols in his lap?
Into the Tiber, Christians, with this crap!
The Lord is not delighting in a nap.
His rest will end. Of that please have no doubt.
Into the Tiber, Christians, with this crap!
The Tiber may indeed just belch it out.

Fraud and His Gawd

A Fraud and His Gawd

Shea is much, folks, like other fat whores.
At his best, the vile fraud simply bores.
At his worst, he enrages.
His mistakes are the age’s:
That’s why Facebook’s the god he adores.

Just Reward

Just Reward

 

To think that Cuomo prick is now in Hell

Brings something close to all-transcendent joy.

Is justice served in Dante style?  Oh, boy!

The devils prod that mouthy punk so well,

He is so chastened by fierce sulphur’s smell,

That all the lies he still dares to employ

Writhe and are silenced.  He cannot be coy.

Around him, flames that boil his marrow swell.

And you, Villano, you who smooch his ass

Even when he’s received his just reward,

You who gave vile hypocrisy a pass,

You who would not take up hard logic’s sword,

You’re more transparent than the clearest glass.

Idolatry is all you can afford.

 

–Tom Riley
