»A Biblical Perspective«

by Edward Iacona, September 22, 2020

The Bible can be a difficult read so
I’ve taken some time and condensed it
It’s mainly about the subject of sin
And God is totally against it.

The good book also has many stories,
And at the risk of seeming a prude,
Upon reading some of them
They could be considered lewd.

It also contains the heavenly rewards
To which it states that I am imbued.
Until I closely read Revelations and....
I think that I’m basically biblically screwed.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, / Or so the old cliché goes. / But, there was something missing / As our loving relationship grows. / / We both knew what that was / And what would make us smile. / If only we could find a way that / Makes our connection more tactile. / / Even on the World Wide Web  sign in to read more »
