Just follow me
He said to me
And for a fee
I'll set you free.
Don't make me grin
I said to him
Your life's a sin
Your words but din.
He said look out
I've got some clout
And when I shout
They all turn out.
I said maybe
But they're not me
From you I'm free
My heart's for He.
He said, hey look
I've got His book
Right in this nook
'Neath my bank book.
I said that's swell
Now know full well
It's hot in hell
No place to dwell.
He said, boy weigh
Your words today
For ne'er my prey
Does slip away.
Then from the ground
Smoke did abound
Now he'll expound
But to hellhound!

I liked this! It's too bad there are those out there who will promise you freedom or blessings for paying them. How untrue they are!
