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
A soiled theology
A thirst for power
Control and domination

They walk in tandem
A future addicted to
The past

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