Fools and Gold

The call to rise from ignorance and vice,
is not religious hype, but more a sign
that you must think a whole lot more than twice.

The problem is we're gluttonous, and spice
of any kind, propels us to cloud nine.
The call to rise from ignorance and vice

is both the whole shebang and true design
of why we're on this earth. To be precise.
the rote religious hype is not a sign,

but more a 'gather up the tithes' device.
Consider well. Before you get in line,
you'd better think a whole lot more than twice,

of what's at stake. No worship hall or shrine
can whisk you to beholding the Divine.
Its all on you. Before you throw those dice,
make sure you're shovel's in a worthy mine.
The call to rise from ignorance and vice,
means you must think a whole lot more than twice.
