Two Words

'God' is composed of letters three...

'God' is composed of letters three,
       But if you put an 'l'
Before the last it seems to me
       A synonym for Hell.
For all of envy, greed and hate
       The human heart can hold
Respond unto the devil's bait
               Of Gold.

When God created Gold to be
       For our adorning fit,
I little think he dreamed that we
       Would come to worship it.
But when you ruefully have scanned
       The chronicles of Time,
You'll find that lucre lends a hand
               To Crime.

So if you are a millionaire,
       To be of Heaven sure,
Give every penny you can spare
       Unto the sick and poor.
From Gold strike out the evil 'ell,'
       And so with letters odd
You can with peace of spirit spell
              Just GOD.
