Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
What is it with people,
Who make self righteous claims...
Of having strong faith.
But everyday they look forward,
To playing the role of God?
They 'know' what God from them wishes,
To receive messages that go ignored.
With a pretentiousness kept to say,
If God delivered a message...
It would directly be sent to their front door.
Highly favored and blessed,
They address themselves to be above the rest.
To then confess how demons affect their daily lives.
With a giving those messages sent and are effective,
Reasons to excuse as they use alibis.
And these are the people,
Rushing to sit in pews under the highest of steeples...
With belief if they do this,
God will be more impressed by their deceptions.
To regard them as special and chosen exceptions.
