COUNT THE COST ( 2020 ) 2020/03/10

Rage,  rage  against the coming storm

Its  days  are here before  too long

Look  to the sky,  approaching  morn

Ere  their currents  become too strong.

The  times are changing  oh,  so fast

As  all our values soon  get lost

Into  one role  they  shall be cast

With  no way left  to count the cost  !

What is this sound falls on my ears

It is the echo of our fears

There’s no recourse, we cannot wait

Barbarians are at the gate !

Oh wayward star where have you been

What kind of world are you lost in

The road is slick, the path is steep

Where is the vision that you seek ?

The night is long and lost in dark

While all about is drear and stark

The mist seeps through the window pane

Engendering a new refrain

Oh Lord, be kind, help us to see

Life’s face of virtuosity !

 

 

NATURE’S FURY ( 2017 ) 2017/12/13

The earth it rumbles, the mountain quakes

The land around it shivers and shakes

The air is silent and seems intense

With no place left for one’s own defense.

The bells ring out, hear the warnings toll

The world now plays a dangerous role

While the lives of those who mill about

Are filled with fear and tremble with doubt

Pray nature’s fury spares all our lives

With God’s help His compassion survives !

 

 

IT’S ALL WE’VE GOT ( 2017 ) 2017/11/07

What madness does this world possess

That causes all such great distress

What petty nonsense fills our days

We’re sure is nourished by malaise ?

For eons we’ve endured the pain

And fought evil most times in vain

This has become the earth’s sad scourge

There’s no more action one may urge.

Now we are here with shattered dreams

Leftover tears and useless schemes

The best there is, it’s all we’ve got

With chances to succeed or not !

 

DANGER ( 2016 ) 2016/11/25

Now I have seen the mighty mountain and heard the restless sea

There is no greater image that my old heart may bring to me

For I am not a stranger adrift upon some foreign shore

But a native born who sees trouble that’s coming soon and more.

I pray that we acknowledge that our future holds great danger

We forgot how times are changed ere we welcomed in the stranger

And so it is that now we are prepared as we must need be

To keep our homeland safe and from all its enemies be free !

 

 

TAKE CAUTION ( 2016 ) 2016/10/05

At times life hangs upon a thread

Or teeters on a word unsaid

Tense moments caught before a scene

Or shouted words just too obscene,

Who knows what happens in a flash

Or what may cause a fatal crash ?

Tis smart to always take great care

Be conscious of what, when or where

For life comes with no guarantee

Take time to think, wait, watch and see !
