"BUT" PEOPLE ( I dare say you've known a few!)

The resident "butters" on every church board ---
what a thorn in the flesh they can be!
With unanimous votes they are not in accord;
they'd rather be wrong than agree.

They give you the feeling you simply can't win.
They'd vote against God, if they could.
Their forte is the one unforgivable sin:
attributing evil to good.

Deliver me, Lord, from people like that.
Their "butting" is driving me nuts.
"Yes, but," and "No, but" and "But this" and "But that" ---
they're sliding to hell on their "buts"!
