A Good Sermon


A good sermon should be like,
A miniskirt:
Short enough to arouse interest,
But long enough to cover the essentials.
Okay, seal my lips
Since silence is the only statement
That has zero misquote

Please this is not blasphemy,
Forgive I if it is,
Am I lost?

This's a message to,
Him or her who hold,
A position to address,
Hear me say,
A GIANT SERMON,
Doesn't raise more converts,
Neither does it make you a saint,
Stick to this:
A GOOD SERMON!

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
