The Righteous?


Please tell no one what I've done,
for you see… I have sinned!

Even a ship at sea can
get lost in a blowing
crosswind

Guidance, we all must seek,
but where do we look…

Ah! That's the question …
 beware that the answer
does not come from the
voice of a hooded crook

There are many full of advice,
but most are just throwing dice,
so if you want my advice…
stay clear of opinions of the
pious
 
Who's to say, who is and
who is not…
the righteous?

Not I for sure…
for I have sinned!

If you have not…
then you are the
righteous?

Who's to say?
