"The Papal Edict"

[Scene 4 "The Papal Edict"]

Trade wings, buffeting the sweet molasses
Smoke of burning cane
Push, swelling East the spreading ripples of unrest,
Back to Europe and the rain
The Holy See safe on Tiber's shore
Surveys the flotsam on the tide
Ignores the cries of drowning men and
Passes on the other side
