persnickety…

sermons
always contained
just
enough
sideline sunday sin
to
engender
a level of guilt
that
fosters
donations
proportionate
to
perceived public perception
of
sins committed
offenders
carefully monitor
smiles
smirks
and
direct scours
of
other parishioners
to
assess
the level of discernment
by
said
members
to
the number of sins
previously
thought
to be
undisclosed
following
this post sermon survey
as
the collection t plate
canvasses the congregation
the magnitude of
the visible
repentance offering
is
adjusted
and
humbly given
but
with
flare

an invitation…

an invitation

come on down
to the front
of the church
leave
that back pew
and join
the few
in the front
don’t mine
sister jones’
grunts
she says
it’s the spirit
i suspect
it’s the chitterlings
she had
for yesterday’s lunch
you’ll have
an unobstructed view
of deacon smith’s
flirting
with samantha smith
no relation
other than
that
which occurs
as they say
round midnight
but don’t let
that ruin
your day
cuz’
after church
we’re having
a community meal
more food
than most folks
have seen all week
which is
why
there’s
so many
amens
trying to put
an end
to all this
fire and brimstone talk
looks like
deacon walker
awake now
must be
time
for some
heavenly chow
