Malachy... Feb 22nd,2013
Pedophile priests wore their long feminine skirts in pink to the floor,
Then there's that huge scandal affair that the Vatican wants us to ignore,
Pope Ratzinger resigned and the cardinals are going to meet up,
To elect a new pope in the Sistine Chapel till the white smoke is enough.
The end of the world is soon enough according to St Malachy,
And old Irish saint in Rome whose prophecies; they tend to hide,
He prophesized a hundred and twelve more popes from that time,
That makes for one more pope if the prophecies are true; so watch for a sign.
And still none of the priests are allowed to have a wife,
Can't have a home of their own or a family, all of their lonely life,
No women priests allowed and those who tried were excommunicated,
That could mean meeting the devil in hell and burned or mutilated.
