Watching Cardinals walking in procession. This piece comments on the institution, I value the fundamental belief highly.


Gone With The Wind

In royal scarlet
Innocent white
Magisterial Irrelevance
Naively oblivious

A rotten clergy
Corrupted
A soiled theology
A thirst for power
Control and domination

They walk in tandem
Contemplating
A future addicted to
The past

The personification of
Gone with the wind
Frankly scarlet
I don't give a Damn

Despite the pomp and pageantry, the ecclesiastic raiment meant to be metaphors of holy sacrifice and redeeming grace, "the emperor has no clothes."

The gathering hypocrites , walking in procession , with more faces than a city's clock , confesing to each other , giveing hail Marys , then smile , and back at it , ASP
