The winners of the Anticipated Indult Poetry Contest have been announced. Below is the entry the judges selected as second runner-up:

To the Post-Conciliar Liturgists
(with apologies to Richard Wilbur).

Sleep silently, blind uncles, who when young
Spat your mother's milk and lopped her tongue --
Who, having filled her house with sweat and noise,
Squeezed to death your nephews' infant joys.
For you, graved childless, live nightmares make
Enduring night. Come morning, we shall wake.

-- by Branden McNeely, age 9

Branden attends St. Joachim & St. Anne School in Towson, MD.
