Hierarchy Demands ... Jan 2nd,2013 - Poem by James Bredin


The hierarchy demanded that the church scandal should fade away,
And that the faithful should shut up and have little to say,
But this is something big that can't be swept under the mat,
We just can't forget that it even happened and that's that.

Vatican worldwide cover-up they say, that no one suspected,
And the elite hierarchy all wants to remain protected,
They have large mansions, dressed in red with little skullcaps,
And a major reformation could leave them nothing but scraps.

And what became of all the pedophile clergy who were caught?
Did they go to jail to stay there or were they assigned a blind spot?
Is it still going on and why does it seem to have vanished?
We never read or heard that the pedophile priests had been banished.
