The Musings of a Modern Feminist

An amateur poet's take on feminism

Viva Papa!


Last weekend I went to World Youth Day in Madrid. Wyd is a gathering of the Catholic youth of the world started by Pope John Paul II in order for them to learn more about their faith and show solidarity with one another. This wyd was my first and it was amazing! There were, apparently, over 5 million pilgrims and there was such a carnival atmosphere. Anyway, upon returning I was inspired to write this poem called Viva Papa!

Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
Long live the Pope.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
Our blessed Church’s hope.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
You have known such strife.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
Such a trying life.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
You know what is right.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
So don’t give up the fight.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
Educate the young.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
’til God’s song is sung.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
Sung in every soul.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
Until mankind is whole.
Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
Our Church, she needs you so.
So Viva Papa! Viva Papa!
Viva Papa! Viva!
