The Vicar Vamooses

 

The Vicar Vamooses

 

By Elton Camp

 

The year 1415 was the last time it took place

The resignation of a pope the hierarchy to face

 

Others have held tight to their perceived mission

Regardless of their physical or mental condition

 

An unusual situation the Vatican will then face

An independent state without any ruler in place

 

Nobody’s sure how this development to apprise

Even to the cardinals it came as a total surprise

 

The vicar says that his limits have been exceeded

That he’s too old and weak to do what is needed

 

For the hierarchy, these have been difficult days

A Vatican paper release has revealed its ways

 

The child sex abuse scandal continue to expand

One younger and more vigorous it may demand

 

So a conclave of cardinals will soon begin debate

As to just who it is that they will select to elevate
