Fleeced

I’m amazed
And sometimes ashamed

At what some say
About church these days

The ways of the few
Misguiding the pews

Using and abusing

The do’s
and don’ts
That won’t

Change the hearts
Of men
Not back then

When sin
got in

Then, we turned to God
To restart
Our hearts

Anew and to do
His will
Not to fulfill

Man’s plan
That demand we stand
Under hand

And even now
Somehow
We allow,
No, disavow

Abuse and misuse
Of the sheep
Mostly fleeced

As they bleep
And weep
Down deep

Inside
As the skies cry,

No more fleecing
