The Making of a New Pope

All Cardinals in Conclave pray
The Holy Spirit guides all day
To voice of God, they will all heed;
A miracle, 'Twill be indeed!

Sistine's chimney will spew smoke white!
'Twill be a grand and joyful sight;
As Holy Father's chosen new,
St.Peter's square with joy will fill.

The best among the Shepherds rest;
The one victorious in the test;
He'll be the Chief Shepherd henceforth;
To Catholics, he'll give great mirth.

A lot of work, he's got to do;
The present world in chaos lies;
There's a spiritual, mundane divide;
Problems galore, the Church does face.

A wise and divine man will come
To Peter's chair and be welcome;
The conclave will find out that man
In secrecy, in short a span.

The Holy See will see new Pope;
With modern problems, he will cope;
He'll lead flock to pastures God-made,
And feed the lambs as Jesus bade!

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
