Don'T Scream On The Corner - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Don't judge me, and I won't judge you,
Don't preach to me like you have a clue.
What in the world are you trying to do?

The hypocrites on the corners, have their reward,
When they scream in public just to be heard.
Pretending they are out there, preaching the word.

Go into your closet and speak to our God,
And if you can convince HIM, you'll get his nod.
Don't scream on the corners about our God.

Surely your reward will be due you,
But it all depends on what you do.
Please don't scream on the corners, like hypocrites do.
