A Word To Parasites

Rating: 5.0
Some spend themselves though never groan
Whilst Jesus' sheep they feed
They deem God's money not their own
Unlike some plagued with greed

Vampires peruse within God's house?
Devouring hoards of gold
Sucking blood like a canine louse
Whilst scriptures are unrolled

While sheep in faith stretch forth their hand
In gratitude and love
With offerings with tithes as planned
By He who reigns above

Yet parasites in pompous frock
Who bumper crops would reap
Intermingle with Heaven's flock
Fleecing The Father's sheep

They've earned they say because they teach
The gold and silver's theirs
Stealthily cool and like a leach
They'll plunder Heaven's wares

For building up a church supreme
For greed or personal fame
They'll eat the fat and drink the cream
Without a trace of shame

With fancy jets and lavish cars
With lucre massed in hand
Like rich Hollywood movie stars
They cruise most every land

Have these been saved or still deceived?
They thrive as common tare
Too blind to know The Lord God's grieved
Or even fail to care.....
