Prosperous! Really?!





I Had Been Invited To The Meeting!
The Meeting Of The Prosperous Folks!
You Know?!
The Meeting Of The Prosperous Folks
Where They Advise
People With Potential
How To Become Prosperous
AND
Get Away From Being Broke!

The Venue Reeked Of Position Prosperous!
The Set Up Was Prosperously Outlined!
The Attendants Were From Prosperous Is!
The Motto Is The Prosperous Do
AND
Every Participant Was Given A New Pair Of Shoes
Size Not Customized
BUT
Manufactured By
Prosperity Idealized
From A Design By
Prosperity Idolized!

Everyone Was Raging In Raptures!

Suddenly ...

There Was A Mighty Hush
ALL OVAH
As HE Walked Into The Room!
Those Who Saw That God
Squealed 
Screamed
Uproariously
In Pleasure
BUT
My God-Given Common-Sense Screamed
'Tis Devilish!
How Profane!

The Glitter!
The Flash!
The Cash!
Impressive Words
All About The Stash
Had Those Around Me
In Ecstasy
AND
I Feared For Their Emotional Crash!

The More That The Event Unfolded
The More My Spirit Cried Insane
As Every Body Put On
Their New Shoes
That Don't  Can't Won't Fit
BUT
Looked To Be Prosperity Personified
AND
That's When For Me
It All Clicked!

By Any Means!
By Any Available Means!
By Any Means Necessary
Get What Your Heart Desires
AND
Gluttonously Indulge
BUT
See To It That You Keep
Wipe
Your Mouth Clean!

The Call To Prosperity
Is Enshrined In The Model:

Walk In The Ill-fitting Shoes
For
The Obvious Impress
Imprint
Cannot Connect Back 
To The Prosperous You
AND
By Every Available Means
Let Other People's Money
Be
To You
The Delicious Candy Chew!



The Whole Operation Is Sliiicckk!

They Even Provided Sample Candy
Ready To
Blow UP!!

I Get Up To Leave!
I Am Stopped!
I Protest!
He Rises
AND
DEMANDS
That I Speak Up
Out!

He Demands:
What Have You Got Against Prosperity?

I Said:
I Am Already Prosperous!

He Said:
You Don't Look It!

I Said:
My Prosperity Is Inside!
It Comes From The Spirit 
Sent From Christ Jesus
Who In My Heart Does Abide!

There Is A Shocked Silence!

I Say:
My Prosperity Is My Peace!
My Shoes Are Shod For The Gospel Of Peace!
My Faith In God Lubricates My Hope And Belief!
God's Grace Lines The Path I Walk!
God's Mercy Sets My Soul Free!
The Justice Of God Keeps Me Walking Light
AND
Right
AND
Out Of Your Hands
You Wicked Devil!
You Who Is The Consummate Fraud!

Pandemonium Ensues!
AND
I Depart
Not Having Indulged Myself
With
Fleeting Prosperity's
Deceptive
AND
Sickeningly Sweet
Candy Chews!






I Am Standing Firm
In The Good News
AND
Want Nothing To Do With
The Wanton Destruction Of Souls
The Raping Of Widows And Orphans
AND
Those Testifying "Precious" Metals
Which Condemn
Rich Men
Before The Conquering King
The Righteous Judge
The Returning Son Of Man
The Great I AM!
