The Evil That We Do

‘Fornication, theft, murder, adultery, avarice, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, slander, pride, folly.’ (Mark 7:22)


A little girl went missing

But she’s found

A woman has gone missing

And feared drowned

A policeman goes to jail

For twenty years of crime

And a sexual culture in our schools

Hurts girls every time


And on TV we have a show on ‘Poo’

It’s very good

It shows you what to do

When trouble in the digestive tract

Causes pain and we retract

The wisdom of our doctors pulls us through


Our diet and digestion keeps us well

From eating till the moment to expel

It’s the vices we consume that cause the hurt

The evil that proceeds from the heart

The Lord enumerates today

Twelve vices that are constantly in play

If we want a healthy body politic

Listen to the gospel and be quick
