THE PREACHER MAN By Edmavino

Written by Editor

Having got addicted to sin
I hear the message of salvation
From a white robed preacher man
I turned to be a church man

The church became my resting abode
I became gentle as the dove
I longed to be intimate with God
I sought to have a heart of Gold

When he mounts the pulpit
I see my life under my armpit
For he pinpoints my iniquities
Before my rugged face

In a noisy solitude, I shed tears
Of accumulated pain and agony
I longed to get harmony
For he said “it is only in Christ Jesus”

Surfing the net at night
The preacher man chats me up at night
I felt it was a salvation message
I felt like a lamb on a slain massage

His words are bitter sweet
Like that of a garrulous priest
God! The Preacher man is a gay
I became dumbfounded, I knew nothing to say

Memories of my past bumped in
Like an outrageous rush of the wind
I thought I was a rugged sinner
The preacher man is a charismatic robber.
