A Foolish Giver - Poem by kelvin karani

A FOOLISH GIVER
Canto 1

A cheerful giver
Is loved by god
So coffers are offered
Alongside envelopes
As a gate pass to LOVE.

The more one gives
The many the blessings
Woe and war unto you
If nothing you take to church
But poverty and a true heart

Tithe, and tithe more
So you don’t end Ananias
Hiding from god and dying
Fear conditions faith-fools
Into senseless endless giving.

Magnificent churches
And ballooning pastors
Are the hallmarks
Of a truly giving flock
What benchmarks? !

Impoverished by giving
Faith-fools live in denial
The blessings get elusive
But they tithe the more!
God hates a foolish giver!
