When  I was young  and but a child

Our hearts ran free in woodlands wild

I’ve watched our days fade fast  away

As  little  children fail to play.

We  have another purpose now

To  Satan’s wish we  all must bow

What’s happened to our future bright,

It  vanished  silent  here  last night !

How can we silence all the din

This world we know does wallow in

Those voices raised in angry hate

All chiming in at this late date.

Where were you when the need was most

All empty words and hollow boast

Or shouting threats that we should fear

God’s holocaust will soon be here !

It matters not where you are from

The lower class or high income,

The price has always been the same

A sense of honor, your good name !

Respect for elders, kindly deeds

Concern for others and their needs

The fact that truth is scoring high

Why would another tell a lie ?

If words are all that one has got

What else is there if one is not ?

Tis sad to note that common man

Has more to hide than less to plan

God knows us all and what we do

No secrets here, not me, not you!

 

SHEER INJUSTICE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/30

There was a man upon the road

Who seemed weighed down by heavy load

With spirits low, his shoulders sagged

And as he walked, his feet they dragged.

Another cause, another place

Perhaps another futile race

Tis sad believing all is lost

His faith and honor are the cost.

Oh Lord above, how can this be

The innocents now deemed guilty

Justice is lost, our nation cries

And all are left with compromise !

As this old year draws slowly to its close

Unlike the phoenix which from ashes rose

May pass without a hint of shadow kind

To leave its taste of bitterness behind !

 

 

REGRETTABLE ( 2016 ) 2016/09/20

Oh how I wish I could return to when

I was that innocent young thing again

A time of dreaming and a time of trust

When truth was important and faith a must.

Each path we took had a positive end

We knew the value of a longtime friend

Our nature bade us to follow the rules

Not to venture along the path of fools

That time’s now long gone and all that is left

Are shattered dreams and regrettable theft !

There was a time quite long ago

When our true colors we did show

And saved this world from tryanny

We helped to set the enslaved free.

Now red was for the blood we shed

So children could sleep safe abed

The blue for truth and honesty

Did aid the weak fight anarchy.

And white for those that died to save

God’s people to escape the grave

How sad that we are forced once more

To fight another ghastly war !
