Pope Sixtus V (1521-90)


Pope Sixtus the Fifth

Pope Sixtus the Fifth went Forth one day
I think that it could have occurred on the third of May
I don’t think that he reckoned for a second
That he would have to travel so far to quench his thirst
Or, maybe he did; but, not at first.
When he died
He was followed by Pope Urban the Seventh
As he himself had followed Pope Gregory the Eighth.

So, a series of ordinals from a series of cardinals.

Hope that this was of some use to you peeps
Just had a first line
And you know the ropes
A first line has to be used (it’s not a thing that keeps)
So, I used it, and wrote this post about some well-ancient popes.
