Dishonest Managers

Dishonest Managers
Pentecost 15; Luke 16:1-13
He said, “You can’t serve God and wealth,”
but greed seduces souls by stealth.
There’s some that dominate by maleness,
claim entitlement through paleness.

Slanderers are seeking votes,
and politicians turn their coats.
Some bribe, or tout for media fame,
or trade on their ancestral name.

There’s those who purchase plastic beauty,
make a show of faith and duty,
use publicity as lie fest,
build the high rise that is highest.

Returning Jesus to the tomb
for profit’s sake leads on to doom.
To serve the resurrecting power
is Earth’s best hope at this late hour.
