A poem by Beverly Stock.
We need to use some common sense
When traveling down life’s highway
Acting so pious and perfect in Church
Is like dressing-up for an x-ray!*
Regardless of how fancy you are
You're a petulant czar to act like a star
In all your best-dressed outside layers
Beside your friends in pews saying prayers.
The higher power has super vision
Despite pretension, he sees intentions
Be honest from now till death do you part
And avoid becoming a Hellish up-start.
Remember the x-ray, it always provides
A view of where evil might try to hide
When gratitude is your default setting
All is well and gratitude starts spreading.
