Southern Baptist Conventions

And every other one's a Mormon cult
or a Catholic fake. Or like the Jew:
an incomplete.
The only books I will consult —
they number sixty-six: the New
the Old repletes.

The only Jesus I will ever know
believes in atheist Ayn Rand
on government:
It is the Devil that takes dough
from Godly rich men in the land
from Heaven sent.

My Holy Bible sets the rule for all —
as long as it aligns itself
and Jesus text is trumped by Paul.
It sits right-side upon my shelf
and bedside stand.
