A poem dedicated to Kong (Con) Hee

A poem dedicated to Kong (Con) Hee

by Patrick Lee Song Juan (Notes) on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 11:49pm

A young man of humble beginnings
With wife Ho Yeow Sun
Living in a five room HDB flat
Life was simple and honest.

Never believe a man can change
Adopting a name of Kong Hee
Forming City Harvest Church in god's name
And CHC grew by leaps and bounds

Before long he is worshipped as the living god
His congregation grew to 20,000 strong
Along the way, the church fund too
Giro deduction is the order of practice

In no time they acquired Suntec City
For  a princely sum of $300 million
It is incredible for a church to be that rich
And the shady dealings is slowly unfold

In steps CAD to investigate
And it took three solid years
To piece all the evidence
To formerly charge the leaders in court

And Kong Hee becomes Con Hee
Ho Sun dancing to the tune of 'China wine'
Living it up as a celebrity in US
Yet never made it to the top

Living it up in Sentosa Cove
In a property worth 20 million
Con Hee still maintain his 'integrity'
To the last of his dignity

Justice will prevail in the trial
A 'living god' greater than god
God is crying in heaven
For such a man in his cosy haven.
