A pious man who goes to church not once, but twice a week.
His lovely wife takes care of home, so mild and so meek.
They have a little boy and girl and one more on the way,
he bought the kids some candy canes just after work today.

He's working hard to make ends meet, does forty plus a week.
The boss-man raised his pay last month, said sales are at a peak.
They own a Town and Country and a little Subaru,
the neighbors wish they had his life and perfect family too.

But underneath appearances the rot runs through and through.
His wife's an alcoholic who's excuse is that she's blue.
Daddy never stays at home on weekends with the kids,
he tells his wife he's playing golf, she knows he's telling fibs.

Yes, truth be told this reverent man who wears the pleasant smile,
trades porno pics with other men who agents have on file.
On Friday nights he stalks his prey with evil, secret lust,
to have his cake and eat it too for this perv is a must.

So when you chance upon a chap whose life seems all too good,
remember what he's really like may lie beneath the hood.
For if the light that shines from him is just a mere facade,
the time will come when he will surely answer to his God.
If... the light that is in you is darkness, how great that darkness is! (Matthew 6:23)

An interesting twist! At reading the title and the first few lines, I wondered if it would be a criticism of the churches or something along those lines, so I must admit it did a really good job, the last two paragraphs having a real sense of force to them.
