De Superbia Francisci

De Superbia Francisci

Does Francis grovel? No! That’s mere appearance.
In truth, he urinates on long-dead nuns
Amd priests. Church here for sale! Plus, it’s on clearance!
Does Francis grovel? No. That’s mere appearance.
He’ll thank you to refrain from interference
As he betrays Christ’s brides and Mary’s sons.
Does Francis grovel? No: that’s mere appearance.
In truth, he urinates on long-dead nuns.

Sorry Spectacle

Sorry Spectacle

Pope Francis has apologized again
For something that in truth did not occur.
Liars accuse the Church. He says amen,
Positioning himself as minister
To all the wounded souls that never were.
Along the way, he pisses on the dead.
Do those he seeks to satisfy then purr
A pleased response? No chance. They roar instead
And soft Bergoglio’s bogus act is fed
A whole new fuel. The cycle will proceed.
Repeating all the pointless things he’s said,
The pope will grasp the sucker’s role with greed
Because he loves to posture and to suck.
For Christians now alive, he’s rotten luck.

Apologia Francisci

Apologia Francisci

Has anybody noticed that the pope
Never apologizes for the things
That he himself has done? Instead, the scope
Of the repentance crap he always flings
Only embraces others. Priests and kings—
And prophets too (we shouldn’t leave them out)—
Are sinners. So the Holy Spirit sings—
And so the sensible should also shout.
Bergoglio, though? The subject is in doubt.
His predecessors were the naughty guys.
His own flaws he declines to talk about.
He is supremely good, supremely wise.
He points the finger freely, then proceeds:
“Hey, I condemn their thoughts, their words, their deeds!”

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.

Impatience at the Confessional

Impatience at the Confessional

Long line of
miserable sinners before me? To
Hell with it!

New Way

The New Way

More advanced Catholics now know the way
To be pro-life in truth – for they say
The old way’s a distortion.
They are fighting abortion
By supporting it day after day!

Villanelle of Doctrinal Development

Villanelle of Doctrinal Development

We’ve modified our firm stance once again.
Development is not self-contradiction.
When we say A, then B, you say amen—

And nothing critical. Though now and then
We feel from our reversals some small friction,
We’ve modified our firm stance once again

In order to conform as citizen
And slave. Don’t say that this is dereliction!
When we say A, then B, you say amen—

And say it with a smile. Beyond your ken
Resides our subtle grammar and our diction.
We’ve modified our firm stance once again

Because, at times, two nearly equals ten.
Arithmetic was always just a fiction.
When we say A, then B, you say amen

And mean it. Our wild beasts you cannot pen.
They do not correspond to your depiction.
We’ve modified our firm stance once again.
When we say A, then B, you say amen
.

(Catechism now contradicts two full millennia of former teaching.)

Ungifted

Ungifted

Shea is a fraud, but not a gifted fraud.
We are not talking L. Ron Hubbard here.
Only Shea’s ignorance is vast and broad,
Not the extent of his deceptive sphere.
Gullible Catholic types French-kiss his rear.
The goofball ghetto makes it possible,
His little act, absurd and insincere.
Nobody notices his wits are dull.
Shrug off the bovine crap of which he’s full!
Ignore the points that he pretends to make!
The essence of the contents of his skull
Is pettiness, and nothing is at stake
When he presumes to speak his churchy stuff.
You cannot disregard him quite enough.

Sacred Right

Sacred Right

The sacred right of child dismemberment
Is what Joe Biden’s eager to defend.
With Merrick Garland at his side, he’ll bend
Heaven and earth to battle our descent
Into respect for life. All discontent
With Roe v. Wade as truth revealed must end!
What part of “FUCK OFF” don’t you comprehend,
Misogynist pro-lifers? Now repent!
Such is the message sent by Catholic Joe—
And I for one could not be more delighted.
Biden’s a wimp as adversaries go.
Putin and Xi have never been affrighted
Less of a president. The end of Roe,
With Joe as advocate, is clearly sighted.

Some of His Best Friends

Some of His Best Friends

(Bergoglio professes to meet with victims once a week.)

Pope Francis, saint before he even kicks

The papal bucket, suffers vile attacks.

Some commentators say that he is lax

In shielding kids from pederastic tricks.

The kind of media that always licks

His Petrine shoes now dares to make mean cracks.

“He never gives his pals the proper axe!”

These are assertions that he’s swift to nix.

How dare they doubt his perfect sanctity?

How dare they growl he needs to make amends

Not for the Church but for himself?  He’ll see

That this campaign of accusation ends!

He’ll prove his probity conclusively!

Sex victims are among his closest friends.
