We Will Never Have a Pope

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
cannot decide

or agree
on a guy

the world remains
pope free again

and not much
seems to have changed

There really is
no other news

so here we are
staring at

some old chimney
in the town of Rome

we will never have a pope
and that is just fine with most

Here is a haiku/punk rock lyrics

Never have a pope
We will never have a pope
Let’s go do some dope

I have a lot of meetings today, so I am just winging it:

Black smoke means no pope
Black smoke also means bad fire
Black smoke means run fast

In the Vatican
there are a whole lot of men
with bad voting plans

There is no new pope
We will never have a pope
I just hope and hope

You all spoke too soon
and now you look like real fools
we do have a pope

Morning people suck balls
there is a new pope
and all of you are wrong
except for that Nellie girl
