Disagreement about the Pope’s action
when, in Argentina, senior Priest.
Work with the poor claimed with satisfaction.
Alms, and spiritual aid, through him, increased.
No dispute as a generality,
until it’s claimed he told those favela
folk, that for their spirituality’
‘rid Devil from your lives, must endeavour’.
That certainly annoyed me a great deal,
as the context in which he argued this
was, where stolen children were unrevealed,
the missing, the murders, the brutal fist.
To rout out Evil there was a strong case.
He looked for the Devil in the wrong place.
