“Men and brethren what shall we do?”
“I think that a tax deductible donation is the thing for you!
Place your hand on the television screen
And by MY holiness I will make you clean.
Oh there will be plenty of mentions of Jesus’ name
It really helps to legitimise my claim
And while your faith is sinerely true
I can really use a buck or two
Television time don’t come cheap
Not to mention leather upholstery for my customised jeep
Gold taps are for me a must
For a prosperity gospel must start with US
Who says holiness isn’t to buy or sell?
I will live for today
Like there is no Hell.”
This is an extra Acts poem for February created as a modern imagining of Simon the Sorcerer from Acts 8: 9-24.
