Pope's Visit To Fátima, Portugal (12th-13th May, 2017)

 
This was the world of a holy disorder
came from the cosmos across a bad sea
dragged many sinking across an ill border
inventing new concepts, like sin, by decree
accusing the seekers of some kind of murder

after some years I could see these marauders
twisting the truth like a bribed referee
I said “it’s enough”, for I am a guarder
of innocent minds destroyed by a fee
paid to those men who’re set up as defrauders

I searched in the cellar beyond the old larder
figuring ways how on earth to break free
took many notes as an active recorder
as consciousness rose to a new pedigree -
handed those notes to angelical warders

the angels were angry about the intruders
though had to admit I was part of the key
for somewhere deep down we are all the colluders
remaining in prisons in which we agree
to strike up a deal with their role as foreboders

I might be a watchman whose pen’s an exploder
of myths and religions which grip to a tee
but I will forgo the likes of gunpowder
let lies run its course in this mad jamboree -
a fight for control by illuminees' order

you might as well learn from someone like Yoda
at least he seems honest when stating his plea
may force of the light-side be henceforth the coda
of genuine seekers adrift on the sea -
it’s time for those pontiffs to simply move over.
