BIBLE-TOTING MONKEYS



Ananias and Sapphira died
A shameful death, because they lied:
Wanted to help further the Gospel
But conspired to lie in the Temple-
Seeking to be among the selfless
Sold their land, ended up lifeless!)

That was the time of Church-family
Not this time of alms-seeking homily
Now, Reverend's words become fingers
Goes into pockets and there lingers
'Amen!' His belly is bloated, bank full
But pocket-owners turn paupered fools!

Today, church knows not its members
Pastor forget names (tithe he remembers!)
Go in a beggar, you'll get beggared
Go in haggard, you'll exit tattered
Go in a sinner, out a canonized Devil
Ah, how came about this great evil!?

See; Pastor taxes his congregation
He builds great colleges in the nation
With fees members can never afford!
Pastor flies jets, member walks Leg-Accord!
...But Jesus walked afoot, borrowed donkey!
Who taught these Bible-totting monkeys?
