The Devil’s Seduction

It’s the devil’s seduction —
money, power, prestige,
the cushiest job in
Washington.
It’s Mephistopheles
saying, “Such a deal
I have for you, you
already corrupt and
even more corruptible
you” to Faust.
It’s the world’s fool’s
gold coveted by the
most self-righteous,
white, evangelical,
Christian legislators
just like Aaron’s
gold bull lusted
after by the chosen
people when
Moses got delayed
at a red light on the
mountain at a stop-
over on the way to
the promised land.
