A tiny chimney has been given many a stare
by an enormous crowd gathered in St. Peter’s Square.
Sequestered cardinals attempt to elect a new pope.
White smoke from the flue is what many faithful hope.
Four times, the emissions have been black.
Hopes for electing a pontiff were turned aback.
Will the results be positive on the fifth try?
“Fumata Bianca” is the loud popular cry.
So now a new pope has been elected.
His entry on the balcony is anticipated.
