Some people think it a gas

To bring up faux pas from the past…

Riding on the back

Of the current hack,

Depending on stereotypes cast.

Lovers and haters alike

Really enjoy good fights…

As long as you win

It’s worth tucking in,

To parties and dinners at nights!

For me, I tend to get busy,

Spinning around makes me dizzy…

I can’t play the game

With old “what’s his name”

Without acid reflux getting fizzy.

At present it seems to be

Just one big old party…

Saying nearly the same

Under another name,

I doubt they really care for me.

While the country slides into hell,

Those folks all live very well….

With a Pres. who spends

As much as it extends,

And as much of the country he can sell!

Problem is, the other side’s nearly the same,

Just as whacked out with power and fame…

We little folks hunker

Down in the bunker,

The only ones feeling national shame?

(opinion, based upon church experience and church history)


When I was young, history,

Was very interesting to me…

My church went “social”

Losing its focal

Point as its doctrine went weak.

During my years as a youth,

The church focus went uncouth….

Asking missionaries

Insurgents to please,

While downplaying Gospel truth.

This “Liberation Gospel” style,

Took over Christ’s message a while…

In some churches still

They market this swill,

Repackaged for a new kind of trial.

Whereas Christ died to pay our sin debt

And resurrected as the new life we’ll get…

In “Liberation” He’s martyred

In revolutionary ardor,

And the idea of sin to forgive—Nyet!

My denomination remains nameless

And in some dark corners shameless….

Promotion was made

Of a “Gaia” god-maid,

Whose adherents used deception to “tame” us.

It was a major denomination,

Under an umbrella organization….

Whose leadership went slack

In ways hard to track,

But following political beliefs of the nation!

The Gospel being hijacked,

When the Bible as truth is attacked…

The church tries to gloss

Over the cross,

And the pendulum has to swing back.

(For time is short!)
