I always wondered
What those little babies
Floating around limbo
Did with their time

Did they cry for their Moms
And miss their Dads
While they were denied
God in Heaven
By a gang of misogynist
Child molesters
Who molested them
And their parents
With this hideous torture

Limbo is now gone
But what about the rest of the kids
They molested
Will they keep floating around in limbo
Until their molesters are brought to justice

This gang of misogynist child molesters
Believe their clerical garbs
Clothe them in immunity
That is where we lawyers come in

To every Pope, Cardinal, Archbishop, Bishop
Priest, Abbot, Monk, and Brother
I say:
What did you know?
And when did you know it?
About your colleagues molesting children?
And why did you not instantaneously stop them?

“If any of you put a stumbling block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were fastened around your neck and you were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

With all due respect to Jesus Christ
I oppose the death penalty
Even for misogynist sexual predators
Of children

Whether they go to hell is not in my hands
But I can certainly try to put them in jail
My law students too
Whom I have trained to do
Go sue!
That Gang of misogynist sexual predators on kids!
Let us put these clergymen into purgatory
Save these molested children from limbo
