The "bored" of directors

1 Timothy 6:10 

10 For the love of money is the root of all evils. Some people in reaching for it have strayed from the faith and stabbed themselves with many pains.


The “Bored” of Directors


They rake in the comforts of their appointed positions

They take what they can get to secure their own

When things fall apart they move into seclusion

as they hide their trail and the government condones


The wives of Phil and James baked themselves some cakes

The “dough” that was leftover disappeared into family pockets

They were riding high with attractive famous men in tow

It’s really not strange to miss their names on the docket


They won’t be implicated with the mighty on their side

Powers of darkness rewarded their guile indeed

Don’t get frustrated for in the darkness of the night

they'll reap judgment’s reward with un-relented speed
