Carrots Chemicals or Christ

Chomp on this dangling carrot
Carotene consuming hoper's dream
Cost cutting therapeutic thumper
Confined yet content
Confidant comforting hare
Companion in prayer
Conversation and counselling skewed

Some rely on chemicals
Discovered tested prescribed
Approved by government
chemists medics and clerics
Cost comparable to carrots and hares
Cheaper than running a farm
and oh the learning curve

Christ the true comforter
Controlling His holy spirit
Allocating to the repentant
Doling out to the grateful
Answering disciples prayers
Blessing His worshippers
Time is on His side alone
