    There now is a Bishop of Limerick
    Who played on the Bible a funny trick:
    That to wed man to man
    Was in God’s divine plan

    There he is now as Bishop of Limerick
    Who the Anglican Communion made sick
    By what he and Rowan
    In back-dooring plan
    Committee-dly made useless and tragic.

    Killaloe ([I] Cill Dalua [/]) meaning Lua’s church
    Has recently experienced a lurch!

    The Gospel and history there to besmirch.
