The Church And The Law... Jan 4th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin



Apparently the church did not have to abide by common law,
And cardinals and Vatican elites did not think of this as a flaw,
Because the Vatican canon legal system was closer to god,
Therefore their legal system was above ours and this was not odd.

And there was no need to even discuss this with common folk,
They might not show enough respect as they stood there and smoked,
Therefore pedophile priests had to be treated with Cannon Law,
Moved to another parish and this could not be viewed as a flaw.

And this pedophile-priest scandal should be swept under the rug,
So that the bishops and cardinals could just give a shrug,
And those who have left the church better return back soon,
Or their sins will not be forgiven and they'll go to hell and ruin.
