God Needs No Gold


God needs no houses
no million dollar mansions
but some religious leaders do?

esteemed leaders
at pinnacle of their religions
need glorious luxury edifications

to prove worshippers
are worthy of their God
worthy of their leaderships?

esteemed religious leaders
are supposed to care for all homeless
destitute who need shelter receive no homes?

Though the heart still be as loving,
