Hierarchy Demands... Jan 5th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

James Bredin

The hierarchy demands that their sex scandal should fade away,
And that the faithful should shut up and have little to say,
But this is something big that can't be swept under the mat,
We just can't forget that it ever happened and that's that.

Vatican worldwide cover-up that went on and no one suspected,
By proclaiming Canon law above common law, they were protected,
They have their mansions, all dressed in red with little red skullcaps,
A major church reformation could leave them with nothing but scraps.

And what became of pedophile clergy who were caught?
Did they go to jail and walk the line or to a church blind spot?
Is this still going on and why does it seem to have vanished?
We never read or heard that the pedophile priests had been banished.
