An Obituary Limerick for Late Oral Roberts

Oral Roberts was a pentecostal minister and pioneering televangelist, best known for his work as a faith healer and for his controversial fundraising.

For funds he was always appealing
with promises of divine healing.
It could be that Oral
now hears angels choral
sing, “Buddy, you spent your life stealing.”

Cursing makes some folks complain.
A “gosh” or a “geez” causes pain.
But it”s weasels like Oral
whose schtick is immoral.
Now that”s taking God”s name in vain.
