Le Pape V (The Pope) – Tarot series; major arcana

What god made you Vicar in the Church of Peter?
You relish the power and the pomposity
You hold many a key but let no one enter
Your reach is mighty, but empty is your center
The mark of the papacy is atrocity
From a throne in the Holy See reigns a cheater.
