People don’t think God is stupid, when they burn a sacrifice
they are confident that what they torch is just to symbolize
what goes on within their souls and how they want to be made whole.
What they give at synagogues and temples, churches, mosques and such,
Passes to administrators who are tasked to manage funds.
When something is stolen trust is broken and the souls as well.
Basic honesty is what is wanted from the president.
Bankers of poor character may well be chucked out onto the cement.
Rabbis, pastors, priests, and imams all must live above reproach.
