Today’s poem is a take-off from my editorial today at FMag, based on Acts 19, with seven independent ideas for service, so only the septet with a ABCBCBA rhyme scheme holds it together.

Do it right, help others fully obey.
Find your platform, to reach the world and connect.
The holy in unclean hands will strip and bruise.
Make your godly plans, let God perfect.
Repentant men, confessing, God can use.
Riots from hidden motives you must expect.
Avoid the violent mob, stay out of the way.

What do you think?
