Papal Cant Poem by Chidi Anthony Opara

Papal Cant



In the sanctum
Of the parish,
Before matrimonial mass,
Pretty bride,
Terrified parishioner
Lay spread,
Involuntary invitation
To threatening cassock
To cushion celibacy,
Papal cant.
After unholy hug,
Vandalized virtue
And vanished virginity
Await groom,
Zealous parishioner
Fed full
With another cant
Of “no pre-marital hug”.
After matrimonial mass,
Cassock and couple
Mingled in merriment.
