(Based on 1st Timothy 3:7)
Morbid though it may look,
When you finally are “took”…
When in the cemetery,
Would you like written in the book?
Specifically, elders of faith,
By outsiders be thought straight….
But yet seeing
Those elders are worthy of taste.
Are you known for sticking to guns,
Or for being wishy-washy ones…
Defending faith there
With intellect, savoir-faire,
Or known for resting on buns?
A reputation solidly moored,
Is a sweet-smelling fragrance to the Lord…
Described by enemies
As a friend they’d want to please,
Or be honored by being directed toward!
