Poem: The Pharisee

Poem- The Pharisee

Haha

You never seem to amuse me

Quiet they say you are

But you are so cunning

You are nothing but a Hypocrite

Pretending to be who you are not

You seek my help

But after I have given it to you

You go behind my back

And slander me to others

You never seize to keep me puzzled

Keep slandering my name

Keep backbiting me

Keep gossiping about me

Keep on pretending

As you do,

Someone else will do to you

Your dishonesty won’t last my friend

Nothing is hidden under the sun

Someday your Hypocrisy

Will cost you everything

It will cost you, your dignity, honor and respect

You might not care about anything as yet

You might keep offending and hurting others

That’s okay!

Keep on keeping on

But I warn you friend,

If you continue this way,

You will lose everything

And you will be left with no one to lean

Not even yourself!

25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. 

26 Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.

27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 

28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.

Matthew 23:25-28
