Peter doubt

I couldn't place Peter the Roman
in the conclave
He's not supposed to come from Argentina
nor is he a humble man huddling with the poor
catching the bus
mingling with the throng

On this rock
I build my role
The key to the crypt
keeper of immortal secret

Til the last one says
Jorge Mario Bergoglio
will not sack Rome

© Grant Van Wingerden

Peter the roman means Pope Francis from the Jesuit order

Grant van Wingerden is a poet from the Bush. He may not resemble Henry Lawson or Banjo Paterson, but his town of origin still remains un-mapped by Google. Grant currently lives in the comparatively green and lush Blue Mountains of New South Wales where he looks out over a remnant stand of melaleuca.
