Poetry – TV Evangelist

TV Evangelist

 

With his hand upon the TV

He invokes Jesus and the scriptures,

Inviting the faithful followers

To join him in his raptures.

 

Fighting with the demons

He drives Covid from the sick.

All you have to do

Is present him with a cheque.

 

He drives in his limo

To his mansion on the hill.

Then to his waiting learjet

Servants tending to his will.

 

He wears the most expensive suits

And eats like a king.

In the business converting lost souls

Who’ll give him everything.

 

Preying on the stupid

Who all their lives did toil.

He’s the holy moly charlatan

The purveyor of snake oil.
