, unless in prison

from Bo Burnham – Rant Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Both of these items are useful only in prison. Supposedly a pope would only consider use his genitalia when in prison, where homosexuality is more prevalent due to the skewed gender ratio (see below). Additionally, this is a reference to the clergy who have landed in prison because of their sexual exploits with boys. A soap on a rope is useful in prison, as inmates wish to avoid dropping their soap in prison showers due to the supposed tendency of inmates to attack and violate those who bend down in the shower to retrieve dropped items.
