You rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. – James 5:1 (James 5:1-6)
Listen up, ya rich folks! Ya, us and all be a mist that be fer a wee bit, then poof! We be gone.
Rich folks ‘ill weep and wail on account of tha misery that be coming ter them. Thar gold an’ silver be corroded. Like acid, thar corrosive ways ‘ill eat up thar flesh ’till thar be nothing left but bones.
“Why?” says ya. “What ‘ave tha rich done ter deserve such a fate?”
On account of tha rich be hoarding wealth.
On account of tha rich failed ter pay workers thar pay.
On account of tha rich failed ter pay tha harvesters a fair day’s wage.
On account of tha rich be living in luxury whilst gorging themselves on fine foods and drink.
On account of tha rich be fattening themselves like a sow whilst thar neighbor starves.
On account of tha rich ‘ave not condemned them who murder innocent men, women, and children.
Like Cain, tha blood of tha dead cry out fer justice and convict tha rich fer not spending thar wealth on thar neighbor.
