Two thousand years ago or more

When God’s own Son did tred the shore

And angels still had free access

To every spot that earth possessed

There was a man of great repute

Round whom there was a huge dispute.

This humble man of power and fame

Then known as John, his given name

Who thrived on honey and locusts

With leather belt round his waist trussed

O’er his robe of camel hair made,

So sad that he won’t make the grade.

The “Baptist” was how he’d been called

Beheading was his final fall

Remember Herod’s Salome

It was her dance did John away !

In truth, the heart does beat away

Biding its time day after day

And as each day goes whizzing by

The clock will tick and hands will fly

With wings so swift and life so fleet

You’ll feel the spinning on your feet !

Our time, one day will disappear

Along with love and life and fear !

Our hearts are full with eyes cried dry

Why must our youth so sadly die ?

How many dreams have withered there

Upon the vine of unkempt care ?

I hear the sounds of early morning now

Somewhere in the distance, a mooing cow

With traffic passing on a busy road

The whir of truck tires with their heavy load

The predawn mist that finds it’s meant to stay

On a day that seems dark and dullish grey

As the tides roll in they all crash ashore

Just to wash away what was here before !

 

CURTAIN CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/13

What does one seek after the midnight hour

Neath the veil of darkness and loss of power

When the stilled air deserts its resting place

And we bid farewell to eternal grace

May the love of God now protect us all

From the final cut of the curtain call !

I hear the echoes through the trees

Life’s shadows move with each new breeze

Old voices carry loud and clear

And fall upon the listening ear.

The book has closed the story ends

And bids farewell to all our friends

To leave one nothing more to say

Ere we are forced to look away.

But let us go in peace and calm

Believing one must do no harm

Remembering those days of yore

And all of paradise before !

What is this hell that men call war

What is it they are fighting for

They’ve wasted so much blood and gore

We’ve known  it all and want no more !
