$elling Je$u$

The only part of a Rolex Watch That existed when history began Was 'time' which this modern chronometer Now sweeps with its stylish hands

This swaddle of gold that binds the wrist Of the pretentious evangelistic Would be just as popular Back in that time when fear began its epistic

The evangelical glory seekers Whose business it is to sell God Expect their reward is forthcoming In the form of this time-ticking baud

God's message of good has no power In the mouths of limmers like these “For the Lord loves all … regardless.” As their intention is only to please

They will pave you a road to heaven. For a loaf of your daily bread So your head can lay calm and quiet. On your pillow of fear and dread

Let not the bouffant hair fool you. Or the suit, or that bauble of gold There’s no blessing from Heaven. On channel eleven where Jesus is typically sold
