WRONG OR RIGHT, WE’RE GONNA FIGHT

The pope declared the war as evil,
so what is there left to do
but tell our sons and daughters, “Go,
but we will pray for you.”

We’ll pray the pope resist the devil,
that the war is good, not bad
as we entertain a healthy fear
of beheadings and jihad.

We’ll pray the Lord was on the level
when He assured us years ago
that God will always be with us
no matter where we go.

We’ll pray the pope is spouting drivel
and that God is by our side
as the pope within his pope-mobile
protects his royal hide.
