    Thank you Pastor DoWright,
    thank you congregation,
    and I wrote this poem to My Auntie because as we know she’s so amazing.

    ARE YOU PERFECT
    ARE YOU CLOSE
    CAUSE ONLY TIME YOU AINT CURSING
    IS WHEN YOU GOT THE HOLY GHOST :nono:

    YOU SCREAMING QUIET
    HITTING PEOPLE WITH HOT GREASE
    CAUSING RIOTS
    Eating Hershey’s kisses with your diet :nono:

    I know you like to think you think that your fish don’t stank
    But I think it really smells
    And who cares what you thank

    You teach abstinence
    But you always practicing safe sex :deal:

    You pray for patience
    Yet you always askin Lord What Next :boring:

    You tell me to hush
    Next thing I know you start screaming
    Ask me to tidy up
    And you sit down while I’m cleaning :jawdrop:

    Cause you are a hypocrite that’s what you are:angel1:
    You sing Yolonda Adams in the church
    But in the car it’s Youngstar :nono:

    You say this little light of mine
    But our lights are cut off ;)

    Bible say no back biting
    But curse words always out your mouth :nono:
    You talk about the first lady
    And you never quit about the preacher
    I member one time you said if you caught his daughter in a alley
    you know fa sho that you would bet her. :nono:

    You hide your money in your Bible
    Cause you don’t wanna pay no tithes :deal:

    And you say the only offering the church gone get
    Is you offering to fixa plate when the Deacon dies :devil:


    You say the choir
    Is a bunch of artist that never made it :argue:

    And last time you wanted a drink :toast:
    So you pawned your Star of David.:star:


    And that’s all I wanted to get the mike and say
    Thank you pastor,
    Congregation,
    And Auntie Happy Christmas Day!!! :spin:

    Delightfully devilish!

    This piece had many different angles of perception. Quite
    thought provoking , yet humorous! A direct hit on characterization!

    Blessings OnYour House! :coffee:

    Yes, I think most of us can relate to this. Sometimes those mean aunties have hearts of gold.
