 in a beat up van.
Said he was on his way to...Read More

Tithe and Offerings Tax and Sufferings
The end is near o parrots and prophets
who peck and pick my people's pockets.
Shameless shepherds who neglect the needy
and tremble at the table of the greedy.
Many are called by money-milking gods...
but few chosen to rescue men from rugged rods.
The pulpit...Read More
