Turkey Is Furious That The Pope Called The Armenian Genocide A "Genocide"

What word would they have preferred?
I imagine they’d like if it he went
Another way with this thought and had
Just called it a “disagreement.”

Or, hold on --- here’s another way to go:
Instead of the g-word, mention
That back in 1915, their nations did have
A little bit of “dissension.”

Better still, Turkey would not feel that anyone
At all wronged their dominion
If the Pope suggested they and Armenia once
Had a “difference of opinion.”

Besides, does no Turkey official realize
No matter how hard anyone may try
That we often tend to be those things
Which we most vehemently deny?…/world/2015/04/12/pope-a…/25667197/
