Lines on the departure of Rowan Williams

So. Farewell
Then
Dr Rowan Williams.

You were cleverer than
The
Rest of us but
The papers could never
Understand
What you were saying.

In fact
Some of your
Ideas were quite brilliant
Apart from
The Anglican Covenant.

And that was
That.

With apologies to E J Thribb

Dr Williams? Lovely man, great scholar... easy to understand IF... IF... you actually read what he said. Not a man for the 5 second quote, therefore the media were completely at a loss.

Man for an age of careful thought - not for this modern era
