A Stand-Up Priest Poem by Joe Rosochacki

A Stand-Up Priest

Rating: 2.7

The good padre David Ajemia, not from San Diego,
But from Boston, struck out with Conan O’Brian,
The padre is a priest obsessed with the Conan’s late night show
David was a stalker, who felt Conan was his Goliath,
To have duel in the future,
David must have felt he was on the good side,
They, the righteous, would cheer,
For him,
In the name of the father, and of the son, and the holy spirit,
For David confession who would hear it?
The police and/or his lawyers?
The fault would lie with Archdiocese of Bean Town.
It is surely a wonder to me, why in the hell is Fr. David Ajemia around?
He was having psychological difficulties in the past,
Can a shepherd lead his flock when he cannot pass a mental test?
Is it just me?
The church has struggled with its difficulties,
(see Observation What’s wrong with this picture?)
Could it be that somehow the church pains itself, Opus Dei.
“The prayer of a Christian is never a monologue” Escriva* once wrote,
It could have been Conan’s writers at fault,
David, in his convoluted mind, could have thought.
Father David has been suspended from his daily activities,
While he goes through his trial and tribulation,
And again the Bostonian Diocese has their lawyers,
Going to bat for their own; but they should put David on house arrest,
The diocesan lawyers had plenty to argue about pedophiles
And people that stalk.
Every legal representation should have a hit,
But they’ll take a walk.
