Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

this is about the late John Geoghan, former priest and convicted child
What goes round must come round
Whacked in jail, now you're down
You molested children and now you have died
Where are you residing, only God decides

An inmate waited just for you
Choked the breath out of you
Dropped your lifeless body on the prison floor
One less jailbird we will all be paying for

Did you find the exit sign on the roadway out of heaven?
Or did God forgive you,
What did he do?
For sins that you committed here

Someone waited just for you
Mr. Geoghan, you are through
Dropped your lifeless body on the prison floor
One less jailbird we will all be paying for

Nice work Royce.

I'm fiving you on this one. Well executed, pun intended. I don't think a lot of people are chocked up over this.
John Jenkins - August 27, 2003 - Report this comment
I think it was appropriate that you refused to honor him with the title of "Father" Geoghan. Well done, Royce.

This prisoner was not 'executed'. He was killed by a fellow inmate, which to me is as bad as a so-called pro-lifer deciding to kill an abortion doctor because he kills babies.

Oh, but he was executed. It just wasn't state sanctioned. Tell me how that guy got into a solitary confinement cell in a maximum security area and managed to keep guards out for eight minutes while he did his dirty deed. He just so happened to have a history of abuse as a child and was in jail for life. This guy had nothing to lose and another conviction means nothing since he will never be leaving prison anyway. Leaves a lot of room for speculation.
