    CHURCH FOLKS

    Amen, Praise God, Preach it Preacher!!!
    All the phrases from a Sunday sermon.
    Listening to Rev. Deacon after a shot of bourbon.
    Still singing those old Negro spirituals.

    Despite what the truth is, they’re still practicing slave rituals.
    The White painted Jesus on the windowpane.
    The collection plate, in circulation for monetary gain.
    Pay your dues fools.

    Praise the words of what the preacher THINKS.
    He’s cheated on his wife, you know Mrs. Rev. Deacon over there in the pink.
    Church is over and now the gossip begins,
    There’s six more days until church again.

    So much time between now and then,
    And there’s so much crap to get in.

    ON MONDAY:
    Mrs. Anderson will run the gambling house.

    ON TUESDAY:
    Mr. Johnson will cheat on his spouse.

    ON WEDNESDAY:
    Pam will hit the pipe.
    And next Sunday pray to make it alright.

    ON THURSDAY:
    Sandra will beat the hell out of her kids.
    She’ll burn the baby with a cigarette near his eyelid.
    She’ll lie to the authorities and say her boyfriend did it.

    ON FRIDAY:
    Mrs. Clark will go home and cheat on her taxes,
    But preach to me about a woman coming to church in slacks.

    Mr. Davis will turn on his computer near his bed,
    Only to solicit kids on-line to give him head.

    Mrs. Martin will tell her kids not to hang with anyone that doesn’t go to church.
    But she works at a bank and steals money from the drawer.
    Then spends the money at the local liquor store.
    Now her husband Roy can run the bootleg operation,
    And with the profit he spends on whores.

    IT’S SATURDAY!!!!
    It’s Saturday night now and the young ones hit the clubs.
    A one night stand or two after the party for some “love.”

    ON SUNDAY:
    The night is over and Sunday morning rolls in.
    IN a couple of hours, it’s time for church all over again.
    Amen, Praise God, Preach it Preacher.
    All the Phrases you hear at a Sunday sermon.
    Listening to Rev. Deacon after his Sunday mornin’ shot of bourbon.


    All this inspired by true stories!!!!! I’m not hatin’ on church…I’m hatin’ on people that hated on me for not being there on Sunday…telling me I was less than they were in God’s eyes.

    Let’s elevate our minds,
    Stop believing so much in mankind.
    Erase the lies,
    Open your eyes.
    If it’s something you feel you can’t control.
    Open your third eye to your soul (GOD IS THERE).

    Hey my man, I'm into this well written piece. I gotta say though, that the whole point of church folk is to exercise faith. You gotta serve somebody... Peace

    Thanks yall....

    RICH-I can always count on you for a nice word

    POET-I'm female, but that's ok. Yeah, I believe in the right to excercise faith, but not at others expense. I don't care what people choose to believe in, but don't doubt my love for him in your quest. Thanks for the love.

    (and the term "you" is generally speaking..nothing personal-I'm sure you knew that already)

    My bad... on the gender tip- excuse me, my sister. I feel you, so many saints are quick as hell to pass judgement.

    Preach It Sista! Testify to the hypocrisies of Church Folk! LOL, this head me rolling, but this is real. I mean its time out for hiding our sins behind religion, only to point to everyone else, and never change ourselves. Sista I so appreciate you blessing us with these rule truths. Peace
