Awhile ago some Christian preachers
Had noticed their attendance fell
Whenever they would mention creatures
The likes of which inhabit hell.
“Perhaps we talk too much of sinning,”
Said one.  “And not enough of winning,”
Another said.  “We make it sound
As if we’re lost and won’t be found,”
A third one said.  A sermonizer,
Who weekly rained fire and brimstone
On congregants until they’d groan,
Said, “Brothers, I’m a terrorizer;
And I’ll be damned, for what it’s worth,
They’re more afraid of hell on earth.”
