Over at Korrektiv, Angelico Nguyen has some clever limericks on pope and pope emeritus:
There once was a Pope Benedictus
Who could make me grin like I had rictus:
His keen, crystalline prothes
And symbolical clothes
Proclaimed, ‘Christ, for His friendship, has picktus!’
Our nice new Holy Father is Francis,
And I’m happy to give him his chancis.
(I’ll admit, though: I frette
At his lack of mosette.…
Quæsumus, no liturgical dancis!)
First, His Holiness shrugged off his mantle,
Then informalized his Twitter handle.
Geezers gushed, ‘The new norm!
Let “Reform of Reform”
Be reformed!’ (For ‘reform’, read dismantle.)
