The Microphone Poem by Kuda Bondamakara

The Microphone

Rating: 5.0


He came to church to give a testimony
He believed could touch the lives of many.
So they gave him a microphone,
To turn the voice into a loud tone.

Elated he was for he'd been cured of Ebola
(Even his wife could attest to this, Viola)
The whole congregation went rapturous
To hear such news; so miraculous.

But when he turned to give the microphone
Back to the Senior Pastor
The response was:
'Son, give it to the Junior Pastor'

But the other Clergyman refused to have it
So the Senior Pastor persuaded him
To kindly take it home as a gift
'The church had given to him
To celebrate his healing dream'.

Ah, the hypocrisy of the finale. Nice work.
