Who Is Responsible A Rant May Offend Some - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

The paedophile a parish priest
Whose outward trappings hid a beast.
Perverted lust that raged below
the saintly face he chose to show.

He preyed upon the innocent
his vile desires warped and bent.
A loathsome smiling predator
who thought he was above the law

He disregarded celibacy
in favour of depravity.
I do not know why this should be
it happens all too frequently.

Then when his sins are brought to light
the church assists him in his flight
to sanctuary in the Vatican
and they protect this evil man

from punishment he well deserves
Offensive to the God he serves.
But it seems not to the papacy
who view his sins more tolerantly.
