TWICKENHAM -- Faced with a continuing sexual abuse scandal across Europe and the United States, Alexander Pope yesterday issued a strong, heartfelt, and somewhat creepy apology to "all those beautiful precious little children" who suffered at the hands of paedophiles from the poetic community.

Speaking at a poetry reading in Twickenham, London, the poet said that he felt deeply "ashamed, embarrassed, and very, very naughty" over the "sinful and criminal acts committed by poets against children and their supple, nubile young bodies."

"You have suffered grievously, and I am truly sorry," Pope told abuse victims. "Your trust has been betrayed and your dignity has been violated."

"We must never allow this to happen again," he continued, "no matter how enchanting we find their playful little smiles."

Victims groups said that, while they welcomed the apology, it didn't go far enough, and that they felt a bit freaked out by the way the Poet kept smiling at them. "Words are not enough," a representative of Irish victims group One In Four said, "we need the Aos Dána to act so that child abusers are punished. Also, Pope needs to cut down on that heavy breathing. It comes across a bit rapey."
