Ministerial

You can be ordained
online,
no need to study anything.
If you don't agree with religious teaching
invent your own.

Forty dollars, pay by Mastercard or Visa
with your one-page application.
Perform weddings, earn a little extra cash,
tax exempt.

Books and videos on how to start a church
available at additional charge.
Imagine,
you, in white vestments,
gazing earnestly into pews of expectant faces:
those waiting

for your unique cosmology to sweep them up
in devout rapture of the delivered.

Thank you Dave and Guernin,

I appreciate your kind comments.

This board is sure slow lately.

Liked this, a fun read.
Just a well-read punk peasant

Going to church makes you a christian as much as standing in a garage makes you a car!

It's a smooth enough piece of mildly satirical writing but is it poetry? I'm not really seeing any poetic elements  other than the line breaks and enjambments. Sorry Linda, JMO.
