Who is fooling whom?


My dear neighbor,
Who is fooling whom this time?
If you are religious,
Then talk and behave,
Like a religious person.

The other time, dear neighbor,
I advised you to throw litter in to the garbage bin,
You answered me like Lucifer himself,
And you still expect me to stop and listen to you

You then called the pastors to come and pray for you,
They prayed and cursed everyone who was against your family,
I was among them, but I didn’t have any bad intentions,
You shouldn’t have done that; I’m a good neighbor

And then yesterday but one,
You brought the whole church to conduct an evening fellowship in your house,
We didn’t sleep, they sang and danced the whole night,
And no one complained about it

When you were asked to say the problems that you see in your life,
You mentioned us, your neighbors,
Yet we only share some wise thoughts,
Know the differences between a friend and an enemy

Be wise my dear neighbor,
I’m not a demon,
I’m a fellow human being,
Who was only straightening things out?

By the way,
Your talks and behavior and habits,
Are not religious,
They don’t match the religious ways of life

Mend your ways,
Know how to live with people,
And you will have all the peace in this world,
Never again will you have trouble with your neighbors
