The Source of Sin

If we listen to just what the Bible
has to say,
most notably in Jacobís book
regarding what †it really is
thatís at the †root of mankindís going astray
from God
and †all thatís †good

it isnít sex of any kind
or desire for it.

Itís when the love of moneyís
on a personís mind
and fills his soul.

The only ones who think itís
otherwise
are joyless puritans
and withered sour sexist souls
who, because they fear they are
but creatures weak and know
they have
no self-control if "woman touched",
despise themselves
and, through projection, †wrongly hold
that Godís good gift
of pleasures of the flesh,
are for mankind
the source evil and of sin.
