There are those who say,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Religion and politics do not mix.
But those who pray for blessings...
Are hoping when they arrive,
They can avoid a tax applied.
And any wish dreamed that comes...
Has a politician greeting you with a smile.
Knowing all the while...
Whatever you get,
The government is going to get lots of it!
And 'whatever' is claimed you own,
Eventually will be lifted!
Everyone pays a price...
Even to flaunt pretentions!
Leaving those teased,
With beliefs they can breathe freely.
