New Pope Selected

 

New Pope Selected

 

By Elton Camp

 

It didn’t take the cardinals long to do

For it’s white smoke going up the flue

 

That means much quicker than expected

Replacement for the pope they’ve selected

 

Not willing to be, by tradition bound

They picked the best new pope around

 

A pope needs great intelligence and wit

The one they’ve chosen is a perfect fit

 

Ideally, the vicar will be loved by the masses

The new one has proven appeal to all classes

 

The pontiff must be able to take problems in hand

And corrections of great wrongs to firmly demand

 

Being charismatic is a definite asset too

So the new choice, on that score will do

 

Will the new pope priestly celibacy now end?

On that, the future of that church may depend

 

The cardinals, this time, did better and not worse

As they anoint a new leader, Pope Oprah the First
