WOMEN PRIESTS... SEPT 14TH,2013
I heard that Pope Francis may let a Catholic priest have a wife,
They should have done it five hundred years ago to lessen the strife,
And I hope he allows ladies to be promoted to priests,
Many are already qualified and should just read the briefs.
And please no marching in the gay parade like our politicians,
Because we don’t need any more pedophile superstitions,
It’s long overdue that the rules of the priesthood should change,
All clergy should be required to have wives and it should not be strange.
And death-with-dignity should not be considered a mortal sin,
Half of Europe already have it; maybe except Dublin,
We are all equal in that we eventually have to face death,
We are all therefore more or less going to take our last breath.
