THE PEDOPHILE PRIESTS' ESCAPE... MAR 5TH,2013


THE PEDOPHILE PRIESTS' ESCAPE … Mar 5th,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

The pedophile priests were not excommunicated; they changed places,
To a quiet parish far away where nobody knew their faces,
This in itself was a crime worse than the pedophile crime,
And all the hierarchy okayed this transfer at the time.




And those who knew about this conspiracy never spoke out,
Did they think that they were saintly, religious and devout?
This is a symptom that something awful went sinful and wrong,
Probably for hundreds of years and they all went along.




I'm almost ashamed to write these words, that this went on,
Is it finished yet or is it an ongoing religious con?
Has anyone gone to jail or has it been swept under the rug?
Will the cardinals, archbishops and bishops just give a shrug?

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
