Being a Righteous Machine

Have you no understanding of the Word?
Does it just seem a little bit too absurd?
What goes in the mouth the belly it goes,
Then it continues out onward as it flows;
But what comes from the heart is defiled,
Evil thoughts of sex and violence compiled;
Slander, theft and murder of a cunning plan,
These are some things that defile a man;
But if you want to eat with unwashed hands,
This does not defile a man as it now stands.
We think of unclean hands being unsanitary,
Rather I wanted to say no need to be wary;
It's true to say as it could cause disease,
And washing prevents as in all the studies;
But more interesting on what comes out,
Than going in is what I am talking about;
Your hands are not as dirty as your heart,
And it shows every time that you impart;
Confessing to build faith will help clean,
And making you into a righteous machine.
