Blasphemous Facebook Repost Requests

Blasphemous Repost Requests

By Elton Camp

“If you love God, repost this is what I say.
If so, he will do you a favor right away.”

What possibly motivates this stupid request?
Inviting and urging you to put God to the test

As if on Facebook he trains his beaming eye
So that those who repost he is going to spy

“That person did the repost especially fast.
I’ll do him a favor before a minute can pass.”

“But I’ll take time from managing the universe
That unbeliever who didn’t to especially curse.”

At least to me, it absolutely does seem
Such repost requests actually blaspheme

Who authorized the poster to speak for God?
Doesn’t that appear to you to be quite odd?

Such repost requests I intensely abhor
And plan to continue simply to ignore

    Thank you for your kind comment. Some posts surely need to be hidden. Elton

    You are so right! Every time I see one that says" repost and you'll receive a miracle by tomorrow" or something along those lines, I get angry. God does not work that way. Excellent job of writing about this in rhyme, Elton. Love, Kim

    Thanks Kim, I'm glad to see that I am far from alone in my dislike of those type posts. Elton

    I wanted to read this because you and I both posted a piece about blasphemy today...a little ironic. But, Lord, do I agree with you here and you positively nailed this ridiculous sentiment. Very well-written and kudos to you for the brilliant rhymes :)
