One God, One Love

 

 

No matter whom your chosen Lord

Or what gifts in death be reward

Whatever path your faith has trod

What word and face you use for God

 

The tenets all remain the same

In each Savior, by any name

Even Spirit, Father and Son

Must be seen as your only One

 

For none allow idolatry

Two Gods is just one too many

And we cannot give Them their due

If earthly things we worship too

 

Those with less pray to make the rent

Others think Rolex Heaven sent

Pass around the collection plate

Money is what we venerate

 

We praise the latest status quo

How else will others really know

Wealth a financial confession

Holiness seen in possession

 

Every text or religious tome

Deifies only God alone

Commands we care for each other

Demands we share with our brother

 

If the greatest of what They ask

We refuse to take on as task

Then forget all the other sin

And pray you can buy your way in

    as great as capitalism has been, there’s a lot to be said for socialism, or at least a kinder and gentler form of capitalism…
