Deception: her

After Acts 5: 7-11

What was she thinking,
that her husband was
clever in his deception,
her deception, keeping
a part of funds received
but claiming credit 
for all? She followed
the script, planned and
possibly rehearsed:
“The full price was given.”
She, too, fell down,
breathing her last.
She, too, was carried out.
She, too, was buried with
her partner in deception.
And what do you profit,
to gain the whole world,
or even a tiny fraction,
and lose your soul?

My post for Tuesday highlights deception, too. Great minds thinking alike? Lol! Blessings, Glynn!
