In the Face of Despair

Sister Marleny, my dear friend—
Her congregation is frightened 
By the ‘Heads’ of ‘Divine Providence,’
That comes from North America!
Those snakes move slowly,
I tried to tell her a year ago.

Also, I inferred:
You have to watch the walls 
They have eyes and ears!…

She’s now locked the convent doors,
Notified the police,
These are desperate cries!
They want to throw out the thirty-two
Little nuns into the Lima Streets

Because the original nuns all want to
Live alike, under the eyes of Christ
With His blessings—

Unlike the North Americans
Whom now
Are like convicts shaken loose.
