The Popes on the Potomac

The experts at NLRB
Believe they trump the Holy See
In choosing who can claim to be
A Catholic University.
The expertise the Board displays
Now gives me hope it will appraise
A wider range of Roman rules,
Beyond the scope of Catholic schools.
Example one: the Holy Writ
Should get a modern retrofit.
Six dozen books, plus one for show,
Should be reduced by half or so.
And those commandments: five of ten
Should be declared as not a sin
By members of the expert Board
That knows which five should be ignored.
The Board should analyze for flaws
The fasting and abstaining laws;
A ruling from NLRB
Would set a billion Catholics free.
Confession is another chore
The Board could claim we need no more,
Because the only modern sin
Is failure to let unions in.

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to
use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex
political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in
humorous verse.

  1. Obama has stopped Boeing from employing thousands in South Carolina, so why not declare himself the Catholic Church’s supreme religious authority here in the US?

    I hope we’re not the only ones in America becoming sick of such overreach.
