Varca, 1942

The Archbishop said
Great landlords and peasants
must worship together
So the great landlords of Varca
shot at their Archbishop
(they missed)
and the Archbishop
barred the church doors and said
No landlord will enter the Church
in Varca or any other Church
in Christendom again
Devils will not be cast out
of the newborn
the dying will not be blessed
with holy oils

After many months
the Archbishop relented
the landlords repented
and everyone worshipped together

and the landlords were landlords
and the peasants peasants
ever after
