the holy see

The Holy See 

Pope Benedict
Hands in his purple dress 
Fed up and tired 
Wonder if God in heaven 
Has not gone and retired too




Prejudices
Who will stand up
And defend the Christians 
A vanishing group 
In the sea of intolerant Islam 
Cowardly is our silence

    'A vanishing group'... Hmmm, I just read recently that the number of christians, worldwide, increased by 20% over the last 10 years... but perhaps that is either propaganda, or just wishful thinking... one group that has (almost?) vanished many moons ago is that of the witches... by water, by fire, by whatever ("thou shalt not suffer a witch to live"... prejudice?)... although I have also heard that witchcraft is again on the rise... a new fire brigade needed???
