Confession..... - Poem by macaulay akinbami

Have mercy o priest
To God through Mary let my plea
Seven times more my sins
That I must to hell submit.

I sinned again o priest
And must to this alter pray
To your ears all my vile
Forgive me and through Mary to the lord.

I lied o priest,
And covet a neighbour’s good
Like many times ere now I did
If you will to Mary today
Tell all, that hide within.

Take this confession as the end
Of all ills before the next
Let me from this alter
To new woes come again.

This is my prayer
To Hail Mary, parceled by the priest.
