St Malachy... Jan 3rd,2013 - Poem by James Bredin


The prophecies of St Malachy are seldom mentioned and obscure,
Because prophecies may not happen and no one knows for sure,
Especially those in Latin written in eleven forty three,
By an Irish bishop in Rome where very few can really agree.

He announced a hundred and twelve more popes with each a different phrase,
From his time onward and means one more pope might scare us and amaze,
Should this old Irish bishop be taken serious or not?
We have no option but to wait and see if this might be some plot.

Or should we look at it from a distance as just mysterious?
Shake our heads and think it could not be very serious,
It should not mean very much to us; one way, the other,
Stop Vatican protecting pedophile priests enough to smother.
