THE POPE IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD
All the Popes stay at their brownstone on E. 72nd Street. I live right next door.
Pope Francis is a communist. In the sixties it was not politically correct to hate communists.
The left hated McCarthy for hating failed governments.
Ann Coulter has seen McCarthy for his prescience
And stepped on the liberal fleas
Who want to eat jam from other people’s jars.
Tearful screenwriters lost their little jobs because of McCarthy. Big deal. I lost my business because of
Big government and fat Democrats.
So why is the Pope staying in such a rich neighborhood?
It’s like Obama living in the White House mansion.
Both believe in income equality except for themselves. More is never enough.
Of course, they don’t need money.
They have power, limos, luxuries and chefs.
Their titles are pretty good too.
Pass me the papal Royal Copenhagen dishes.
My wife used to buy Vatican plates at six hundred dollars a dish
Before I went bust and became one of the almost-poor.
In Bermuda we could get them for three hundred dollars.
We sold them to cover bills.
Now they go for three thousand dollars a dish.
The Pope and Obama pretend that they want to help but phony is as phony does.
The Pope and Obama don’t even rise to the level of phony.
They are voices contradicting inaction.
They are the promises of tomorrow that float in a bottle
Out to sea and land on an uninhabited island.
Next week the Pope will be staying a few doors away from me.
He will luxuriate in the attention of fools.
He will take advantage of their praise while he pretends
That he is a humble man.
And I will have to show my driver’s license to the cops to get down my own block.
I will be inconvenienced by the Pope.
I don’t see him showing his Pope’s card to get into my neighborhood.
What has he done for me?
I am not happy about his playing buddy buddy with Cuba.
The dead are gone but their relatives don’t forget.
The Pope thinks it’s cool to be one of the people and he doesn’t have a clue
That he hates us.
You can’t wear the mantle of the Pope without looking down on us with accidental disdain.
