“The Vatican said it was seeking explanations from Instagram after Pope Francis’s official account
liked a photo of a scantily dressed Brazilian model.”
(with apologies to Rogers and Hammerstein)
Models displayed over Buzzfeed and Twitter,
Costumed in little but stockings and glitter,
Braless Brazilians in shoes heeled with spikes:
These are some things that His Holiness likes.
May show fury
(As no churchman should),
Shouting Anathema! Obstat! or Yikes!—
The Pope’s never felt so good.
