  • A poem inspired by new pope
    To the editor:
    We have a pope
    For the children of Syria
    Ravaged, hungry, ignored
    For the people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq
    Beleaguered in endless wars and
    Death even from the skies
    We have hope for the powerless
    Mothers in Africa holding in their arms children dying
    We have a shepherd
    Who will lead and
    Listen with his heart
    To Americans needing shelter and care
    Hold a wounded world
    Mending the broken pieces
    Habemus Papem.
