and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
Adorned with jewels, embroidered silks and golden staffs
Richly garbed shepherds strut in their ornate robes.
Cynical, stuffy and pretentious, these popinjays are
Holdovers of regal times, a tradition ingrained into the
Bureaucracy of the church, selling salvation like a reality show.
In today's world, there is no place for such extravagant
Superfluous displays of pompous ceremony.
Heads of the church, Archbishops need to drop the image
Of anointed Lords over their flocks, and with humility, tend to the
Poor troubled souls Jesus entrusted to their care.
