Dear Pontiff — Day 1


Dear Pontiff,

I hear you are going to visit my homeland, England, next week. So I thought we should get to know each other. I wrote a poem recently that I’d like to share with you.

 Child of Grace 

Child of grace
God’s anointed
Men in black
Are they God’s plan?
“Come here, child,
I’ll soon be done.”

“On your knees
Child of Satan.
Touch me, suck me
Temptress, whore.
On your knees
Beg God’s forgiveness
And I’ll absolve you
And beg for more.”
