This man reviled by all the press

Who came on board to fix the mess

His name will live in history

He saved this nation  for the free

And time alone shall tell the tale

So many stories to regale

Have faith that in the end we’ll see

His name will mark our victory !

Some memories of long ago

They are still here, they come and go

Without them, how could we move on

For sure, the meaning would be gone.

It’s odd, the thoughts that take us back

Remaining on the proper track

Remembering those days we knew

When all were safe and faith was too.

Opportunity winged on by

With no time left for second try

We’ll have to make the best of all

Because there is no curtain call !

It seems our nation’s drowning fast

The world at large appears aghast

Oh, tell us please what can we do

To save ourselves and cleave to You ?

Our time is slipping past too soon

The path ahead leads but to ruin

Let’s say a prayer that this won’t be

Another page in history !

 

 

THE BAPTIST ( 2018 ) 2018/06/27

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 !

I’ve heard the stories told by men

Of events took place way back when

Catastrophes of world wide note

About which men of science wrote

Sagas of danger we have heard

Chock full of facts in every word.

They spin tales of this our Lord’s  earth

In detail and for all its worth

Assured that God creates it all

Through summer, winter, spring or fall

I find in this no mystery

Just part of His Divinity !

 

 

 

HUGE THANK YOU ( 2017 ) 2017/10/09

Oh Christopher, brave Christopher how did you spend your life

Across the seas and oceans wide amidst chaos and strife

You stumbled into a new world upon your wooden ship

What a surprise it was to learn this was no Asia trip !

And thus it was so long ago this land of ours was found

When the Spanish came to conquer and rule all on the ground

Now that is how it did begin in fourteen-ninety-two

Today we owe Columbus all our love and huge thank you !

I miss the days of glory old

Where history and myth unfold

With repeat tales now long gone by

Of memories that did not die

When we were young and energized

And all our dreams seemed realised  !
