This Is The Best I Can Do On the Day Of 4 Popes

An Account of the 4 Popes With Which I Agree

Some keep the canonization of popes going to Rome –
I keep it, staying at Home –
With a Bobolink for a Chorister –
And an Orchard, for a Dome –

Some keep the canonization of popes with  – Pomp
I, just wear my Wings –
And instead of clanging the Bell, for popes
I’ll go out in my backyard - Thinspace

God preaches, a noted Clergyman –
And the sermon is never long,
So instead of making saints in Rome
I’ll make Them in my backyard.

With apologies to Emily Dickinson
