Snake-Oil

 

well post him to facebook

or send him around on email

having been told that if we do it

by midnight we will be blessed

 

this is a wonder

 

does God really work like that

is He no more than the talisman

we hold when we want a thing

better or more than it already is

 

He looks so sincere

 

staring outward from the display

he looks like he wants to help

and would, but is this a truth that

moses, peter or paul could relate

 

our incessant need

 

urging us casual yet hopeful share

blessed images of an arms-length god

to gain ourselves this limited time offer;

is God a mere snake oil salesman

 

saying “come on down,

Ill be in town all week”
