Tax the tithe

In man God created self
To another, He tasked to share
Fellowships created to bind
Diverse yet the same He makes
To care for man, God is loved
Men daily assembled in God’s name
Denied God’s in dramatic manipulations
Orderly assembled for a rich harvest

Fatter pockets purchase God quicker
Rules upturned for the benefit of man
Men unyielding in the challenge of God
Street rules adopted on the altar of God
For the master, not even a mule to own
Yacht and Private Jets portioned for servants 
Further eroding the protective sheets
Not a care about tomorrow’s people

Impunity and mediocrity finally married
Mesmerized commoner in doubt of self 
Money overtakes God in His holy alter
The soul has a choice after but hide
