Gospel Fest

weekend worshippers entertained 
suffer unholy spirits unrestrained
part-time believers insincere sigh
offering aspiring prayers on high,

high-spirited mutable self-doubts
vain doublespeak’s showy shouts
touchy feely oral emotive screams
inculcate traditions by any means

blind submissive faith expressed
awe-inspiring festivity repressed
fertile sheep-like minds confused
by false prophets openly abused,

fashioning fictional lifeless tales
via lively chorale voices exhaled
through prayerful songs of praise
shrouded in every popular craze

retold ancient stories for all ages
wily performed on many stages
theological genres of false truth
stirring hearts to raise the roof

hapless souls crying out in vain
in tongues designed to entertain
charismatic leaders forever lost
misguiding revelers at any cost

weekend wilderness wanderers
aptly famished by squanderers
followers of sectarian ideology
inter-faith’s cultus psychology

romanticized by religious zeal
intentional exaggerated appeal 
trapped within deceptions walls
deaf to the Father’s faithful calls

believers of trumpery men speak
hypocrites but one day a week 
souls hysterical till out of breath
sinful hearts baptized to death

disciples who know what is best
righteously higher than the rest
imprisoned afore life’s final test
dupes of the accuser’s gospel fest
