               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.
