Popes, Rattles, and Dopes

Every day on the Daily Poet we present the day's news in poetry form.  Do you want to play too?  Simply pick a news item and place your poem in the comments below.  Poetry and news.  These two were meant to be wed.

The Cardinals
they'll vote for Pope

Is that democracy?
Oh no, no, nope

Los Angeles
shook, shook, shook

And New Yorkers can
still drink the dope

Isn't that
what it's all about?

Popes, rattles, and dopes
Popes, rattles, and dopes

Here comes a new pope
a billion Catholics hope
that he’ll rope-a-dope
