    Perfect timing with the Pope. He's on twitter now... I wonder if they'd take confessions there? Congrats on the win...

    Well Linda, I think he would close up shop and take a week's vacation in order to recuperate and get his sh-t together...

    This is a real well-written piece of poetry, it makes me wonder what I would try to say to one of the most influential figures in the world, especially when it comes down to a confession, again I like this poem, keep up the good work

    lol, enjoying this great clerihew again, my friend - I'm looking forward to some more from you xx

    You know that the Roman Empire fought the Apostles of Jesus and only one of them had normal death....then came Constantine who became Christian but for only political reasons to unite the Roman nation...now Is IT wired that the concept Family of God (Father , Son) (Zeus false God and Hercules sun of God) was originally derived from the Roman Empire,,,, This is why is Islam is the final religion ...to correct that Idea and other Ideas ............Regards,(^^)

    the word is weird ......Sorry (^^)

    I wonder what you would be whispering in his ear PD; I have enough trouble confessing to God without doing it with a man. Has anyone ever figured out who the pope confesses to?

  1. Date: 6/17/2012 9:41:00 AM
    never .a doubt .mr pope is just a human .so it is natural that pop might break the ten commands.sorry .then

    I'm unfamiliar with the form, but I'm sure you've done it justice! Mr Pope, huh? I LOVE IT!!! Best wishes, Keith

    Amen sure he would but he cant save us

    Nice words written here. It would be nice for the Pope to hear our confession. I wrote a poem for Pope John Paul. I use to like him until I found out certain things about him. But I'm no one to judge. Many blessings to you. Lucilla

    Cool, PD.... I read that Pope John Paul11 used to hear confessions incognito at times. true story.
