Benedict XVI Is First Pontiff To Step Down Since 1415

What made many abuse victims of
Countless priests mad again
Was his never admitting a personal
Failure or one by the Vatican.

Benedict never took action against bishops who
Would cover up or ignore
Pedophile priests --- they went on to new posts
Free to abuse many more.

His legacy is undeniably tainted but I wonder
If he harbors this hope --- the
Chance to be forgiven like Lance Armstrong
In a televised chat with Oprah.
