There is no way I understand

How tempers get so out of hand

I’ve never seen such anger shown

From persons both known and unknown

What is there that can rile one up

Enough to overflow the cup ?

We’ve seen the foolishness of some

Who cannot seem to overcome

This sad behavior they have used

On those they’ve bullied or abused

Perhaps through faith and time alone

They’ll seek God’s wisdom to atone !

Oh daddy dear what can you say

To get me through this scary day

And help me face my wildest fears

With the vast wisdom of your years ?

What shall I do now I am grown

To find my way back to my home

With you not there to shelter me

From  stress that life shares frequently ?

Oh daddy dear I miss you so

Too great a loss, why did you go

I pray we’ll meet again one day

In God’s sweet land of far away !

Now I have trudged this rocky path

With angry crowds so full of wrath

I really don’t know what to think

Seems sanity is on the brink

There’s not much left to make great sense

The climate has become intense.

Participants are so inclined

Pretending to be dumb and blind

But stop before one does the deed

The rule in hand all must concede

The Lord demands that he alone

Who sinless be, cast the first stone !

 

 

 

SWEET GOODNIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/16

I’ve watched the snowflakes filter down

And heard the rain pelter the ground

I’ve seen the stars zip cross the sky

While clouds above are flying by.

I’ve felt the wind rush through the air

As autumn helped her trees go bare

The summer rains are fresh and clear

And hum a song the birds can hear.

The world’s in tune, the season’s bright

Tis soon to bid all sweet goodnight !

Oh mighty owl high in my tree

I pray you do not pressure me

I’m not prepared for your bad news

Luck is the thing that I could use.

There are some stories I have heard

About your wisdom and your word

How you instill a certain fear

In all of those who dare to hear.

Please help me out sir, if you can

For I am born of mortal man

My needs are small, my chances few

I sure would like some help from who ?

 

THE CLARION’S CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/31

We shall not run out of values at stake

That is an action that we will not take

For the facts are what this is all about

Either spoken gently or with a shout,

Only time can tell as each day rolls on

There is this thought that we depend upon.

When the winter’s young and the cold is new

We own the courage to make this come true

That as we age and experience mounts

There is the moment when true wisdom counts.

You may do your best making fools of all,

But who will stand at last clarion’s call ?

 

 

 

DECLINE AND FALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/26

Tis true that tears are often sweet

That courage rises from defeat,

That wisdom needs to curb its cheek

With all those words that it may speak.

While silence is the calmest way

To channel all our fears away

It’s working hard that is the call

To save us from decline and fall !
