The Pope's smile worries us


nobody has the right to smile
in a broken world like this
unless he has a pact with the Devil
H.H. should cry 
and shake the hairs that are left on the television cameras
instead of smiling right and left
as if nothing happened in Chile!
Suspicious ladies and gentlemen!
H.H. should condemn the dictator instead of turning a blind eye
H.H. should ask for the missing sheep
H.H. should think a little
it was for that that the Cardinals
he was crowned King of the Jews
not to walk around with the wolf
who can laughs of the Holy Mother 
if you like but do not make fun of us
