God Needs No Gold Poem by Terence G. Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

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?

    ...............truly this is an amazing write....where are the morals? ......they could easily use the money to supply the homeless with a quality education.....better to give them a hand up than a hand out..... (Report) Reply
