"Multitude of Soles"

"Multitude of Soles"

A big giant gong appears in the square

The gong began to beat itself,
Soon feet began to gather

They disapprove of how and whom we love,

Deny our civil right to earn a crust,

To work in schools for our Lord above,

Those bigots trample freedom in the dust.

No paedophiles then, in the Church of Rome?
