New Babylon Baptist Church, Inc.
“To stand for office, one must have religion.”
Wal*Mart said to Microsoft and Coke,
“So I’ve retained a priest to make us one.”
The Father smiled, but thought it all a joke
until the Board eliminated sin
and actuated parachute salvation.
With scripture set aside and doctrines thinned
“New Babylon” was “Built for Corporations.”
His contract made the Father’s conscience lurch:
philippics vitriolic filled his cup
and every one disparaged the poor church.
Despite their might, no one could shut him up
until he was impaled upon the steeple
screaming “Corporations are not people!”
