Lowered standards bring the bottom up.
But bottom's bold ascent will never stop
as it demands a dominant hold,
luring unwitting slaves into its fold.

The bottom recommends no limits.
No responsibilities, its gimmick
to suggest there is an easy way
to distinguish man from four-legged prey.

Arrogance blinds the brash and the bold.
Man, too obtuse to define his own soul
finds no essentials in dignity,
cackles to disparage integrity.

The bottom proclaims it brings no harm.
But the unthinkable becomes the norm
when man destined to unite with kings
makes idols of dogs held in high esteem.

The bottom makes excuses for sin.
Redefining the rights of mortal men
implies the folly's just beginning,
ignores the dawn of destructive endings.

The bottom scoffs at God's Grand Contract.
It seeks to hide its known final collapse  
but wisdom warns those under the spell,
the bottom's gospel is eternal Hell.

Temptation comes from our own desires,
which entice us and drag us away.
These desires give birth to sinful actions.
And when sin is allowed to grow,
it gives birth to death.

So don't be misled, my dear brothers and sisters.
Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us
from God our Father, who created all the lights
in the heavens.  He never changes or casts
a shifting shadow.  He chose to give birth
to us by giving us His True Word.
And we, out of all creation, became His
prized possession.

James 1:14-18 [NLT]
