Joe Gets a Warning

Joe Gets a Warning

 

By Elton Camp



To young Joe the preacher did tell,

“You little worm, you deserve hell.

You missed church for a ball game

And that’s just a disgraceful shame.”



Reverend continued to fume and cuss

As Joe’s sins he proceeded to discuss

“And you went out with Sister Mae.

A good boy wouldn’t do that way.”



He said the money spend on a date

Should be onto the collection plate

“We can’t meet expense of the church

If cheats like you leave us in the lurch.”



He condemned going to a picture show

“It’s no place any Christian should go.”

He ranted that the time Joe wasted there

Was proof that about right he didn’t care



At the hateful words Joe cringed in fear

A burning lake he didn’t wanna come near

He saw the reverend at the movie that day

But guessed that for him it must be okay
