POEM: Do Your Own Thing

"I want my way" seems to be

the motto of today.

We tend not to think of others

unless they serve our need,

and at times we have a bit of greed.

Why are things happening this way?

Because we don't believe in God, I say.

Oh, how much we have missed

when we don't follow the Golden Rule

and we never went to Sunday School!

We don't give to charities

to help our fellow man,

but buy all the luxuries we can.

"Do your own thing" seems to be the motto of today.

If you don't repent, to hell you will be sent!

Come to church with me and

you will get God's message from Pastor Lee,

and you will be happier —

take it from me!
