The poem below (by our favourite poet), was inspired by recent events. (See links at the end of the post. )
Apologies to RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET
Red hats in our sight-lines
World-wide being tracked
To give us the right signs
Of how rogues interact.
They’ve been plotting for ages
How to bring down the Church,
So we’ll fight back in stages
Of thorough research.
These things bring such sorrow,
No matter the course of the war.
We’ll beg, steal or borrow
Till the mystery’s no more.
Red hats in the spotlight
Might prise blinkers off.
Our blind faith we’ve got right.
Now to empty the trough.
This poem was inspired after reading about a new initiative “Wealthy Catholics to target Cardinals with ‘Red Hat Report’. Read about it here: https://cruxnow.com/church-in-the-usa/2018/10/01/wealthy-catholics-to-target-cardinals-with-red-hat-report/
