Tv. Bible Calf - Poem by JOE POEWHIT

My golden calf before me.
Sit I do - sometimes for days.
Worship your images - chair style pew.
Your idols are the being and way.
The religion cast to all and few.

Idol hours spent with you.
My Heaven - hand on cue.
Many Gods you bring to me.
They cross the mighty sea.
Cruise ships like NOAH - receive.

Is it Satan's true religion?
The other channel shows division.
One more turn of the cue.
I'm in a church - Mark: 2
Such a question in all life.

What do I really worship?
Are they my Gods or Slapstick?
Yet, there on the big chair.
The one with the fluffy, fuzzy hair.
My simple Bible talking to me.

from my just published book,
DREAMS 3 - 2008 POEWHIT

JESUS SAVES
