    The Old Man By The Old Church

    The truth's been chipped away he tells me
    By the deceiver, the devil,
    They talk of God as some abstract object.


    The old man leaned over slowly
    His arthritic back preventing
    Any further motion.

    Look over there
    His trembling hand pointing at the
    The old church.

    No more talk of Divinity
    They made Him the king
    Of their imagination.

    They speak in word only
    Their hearts are far from Him
    Their eyes hide in their cunning


    The old man then leaned over his precious Bible
    And passed away.

    Not a fan of church, but solid poem.
