Take Only as Directed

(Inspired by Dr (medicine) Dr (theology) Andrew Sloan)

Pathways known! We know we must
Cure all gluttons, sloths and lusts
(Or perfume those whom no-one trusts).

What of greater sins in deed -
Idols, anger, hate, or greed?
Can pharmogen make what we need?

Mind-change drugs could fix all flaws
'Til we kept God's perfect law?
(Neglecting though our sins before.)

Love God more? - just take a pill!
Drink a dose to speak no ill?
Give out your wealth - I'm sure you will!

Addicts could become less bad,
Junkied every day to grab
Medicinal righteousness caps or tabs?
