The Cleverest Sin

The Cleverest Sin .........................................................of them all is Vanity That mankind’s propensity To take pleasure in All the aspects of our creativity Achievement and praise therein For its own ingenuity Can be and more often is Classed As Vanity Clever church Artful religion In its conquest of out spiritual destiny To accuse us at every turn Of the Sin of Vanity To accuse us Of the Sin of Vanity In all its pomp gold glittering ceremony In all its wealth and horded money In all its verbiage preached To claim knowledge of The works and mind of GOD It, the church, has the sheer AUDACITY To accuse US Of VANITY Dictatorial policies A foot in the mouth Of mankind’s GOD GIFTED divinity ………………………………………and we’ll forget about gluttony, greed and avarice; sloth, anger and pride. We’ll forget about those for awhile.
