This week, many people have said that I am the spitting image of the new Pope. As many times as I’ve heard this, I really don’t see the resemblance. That’s me on the left and that’s Pope Francis on the right.
What do you think?
In honor of the new pope’s election, I wrote a poem, entitled “Papal Chase”, which is not part of my entry, but is something I wanted to share with this quirkish and eclectic group of readers.
Cardinals debated and deliberatedCannon commentators speculated
Talking heads examined papal preceptsAnd pondered whether the smoke was truly white
Vatican experts analyzed, prognosticized
On the sidelines, we squirmed and fidgeted,and fretted and sweated
So happy to have witnessedA new spectator sport!
Your comments are appreciated. By the way, I know I have a made up word in my poem, done for the sake of fine poetry.
