That True Believer is one zealous fellow,
The last one you would think of calling “mellow,”
Brimful of holy, rapturous conviction
While strewing biblically inspired diction.
He holds his gaping auditors in thrall
With sizzling tales of hellfire that appall
And how the Devil diabolically
Perverts and undermines our liberty.
You just might think this preacher’s envious
Of Satan’s captivating grasp on us
And spews his fiery sermon to out-do
From his high pulpit to our lowly pew
The devilish spell the Evil One has cast
And cleanse us from our soiled, egregious past.
