Catholic guilt

What does an eight year old confess?

I’ve never understood

And with umpteen Hail Mary’s does a priest declare you “good”?

If currency was catholic guilt I’d be a millionaire

And help the girl who got run over cos I never said a prayer


For every ambulance that’s ever crossed my path


For smoking in the bogs then wanking in the bath


For every time I drink and start a mass debate

About the power of my prayers and how they influence your fate

And for the time that Jesus spoke and said it was his will

And that hearing voices didn’t mean that I was mentally ill
