It’s Sunday and today’s poem by The Bard of Murdock shames those that would slander the new Pope Francis. He published this poem on Saturday, March 16, 2013.
Sit ludos incipiunt
Article link: Predictable Pope-Smearing Ensues
The man in the miter
Is known as a fighter
For Christ and the sheep of his flock.
But liberals will loath him
And clamor to clothe him
In filth from his miter to frock.
A sort will him slander
For nothing is grander
Than covering churchmen in grime.
Yet more will malign him
And try to define him
A partner or culprit in crime.
Abusing and bellows
May frighten some fellows
But Francis will smile and nod.
And as they defame him
He’ll pray to inflame them
With love for his Savior and God.

- 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.
