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
