The Gentle Priest Just arrived

Several switches was made
In my diocese
And this resulted in the
Transplant of the organs of priests

We waited for the new priest
As his car drove in on
A bright sunny evening
To usher him our welcome

Old age has set in
on his sleeves
With a calm look
From his glasses
And a thick voice
From his stomach

His smiles spread across the window
As he gave a warming look
To all present
With a grip handshake

He takes his time
Like a turtle as he walk
And his speeches though
Not too sparky left
An indelible mark

One could smell the breathe
Of reverence as he handles
The sacred vessels
And the corresponding prayers made

His love for orthodoxy
Is spelt out in the wings of the dove
And he is willing to work
With everyone around
To ensure the very best

His love for the poor
and the elderly
Is seen in their concern
Played on the screen

The universal church
Is ever on his lips
And the cry of justice
Can be seen in his tears

His love for the madonna
Is something I cannot forget
As I end this note
Of the gentle priest just arrived
