Cover Ups

The Cardinals Birds Will Sing

Lying to yourself about this and that
a higher power knows
About the: this and that
The makeup and the cover ups
The cardinals will sing in a
Beautiful tune, the raven never
Came back, but the dove return
He  never forgets
What he sees, so he whistles a tune

Does it matter, how long?
How intone: Clergymen
Bishops, Priests and Deacons!
Then there’s Rome: and the Nuns
Come, out of the closet
And sing, to the world.
I can’t be queer. Saintly 
Or holier than thou
Sacrilege:  remember your vows:
A Trouble, trouble
Roman Catholic Church
