It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

Bless me Father, for I have sinned.

It has been estimated that there are literally thousands of Priests still abusing children, despite the claim that the practice has been “dealt with”. This poem is not an attack on the Roman Catholic Church, as abuse is probably widespread in most, if not all, professions involving children and vulnerable adults.


I live
in a crepuscular world
of hot sweaty hands

clerical panting

death of the land
of my childhood

lost in a cellar
of lonely dark
dreams

no-one will help
me
cos nobody
seems
to see
what is happening

who can I tell
what he’s doing to me
when the shepherds
agree
to lie through their teeth
even to death

he says if I tell
I’ll go straight to hell

I wake FOR THE LAST TIME.
Remembering……..

Bless me Father, for I have sinned.
