She Lied And Died - Poem by samuel nze

She lied and died,
Ananias's wife fell
At Peter's feet by
The command of God.

Did you sell your field
For such a price?
Of course I did;
It was a lie.

Her hubby corroborated
Her false testimony and
At Peter's feet
He too died.

They lied and died,
Two two-mouthed fellows;
They sold their field
But hid the real price.

Don't lie and die,
Speak always the truth
So that at Peter's feet
You do not similarly fall.
