Aha!Looks like we have a dishonest congregation here.The poem generally is satirical,as it ridicules leaders of the church and the members at large for their dishonesty when it comes to decision-making.Nonetheless,the criticism is brought out in a humorous way.
He Always Preached.
He always preached
That he had the zeal
To go to heaven
So did all of us
So when the thieves broke in
Armed with guns;ready to fire
And enquired of the congregation
“Who would like to go to heaven?”
Not even our “honest” preacher.
