hope

Posted January 9, 2017

 

a story has been told of a great king
who came in the lowliness of a child
and to Him all heavenly host do sing
in recognition of His mercy mild

He never owned a single possession
as He walked through the towns in homelessness
and never made a single concession
to Israel’s leaders of lawlessness

He entered Jerusalem unannounced
to be baptized in the Jordan by John
then Satan asked that goodness be renounced
so that Jesus could evil’s darkness don

but He would never deny His Father
for His obedience He did affirm
when thrice He did reprove Satan’s offer
overcoming temptation to stand firm

He called His twelve disciples to follow
and to leave all their possessions behind
wanting them to depart from evil’s shadow
to walk along the path the Lord defined

He performed miracles for all to see
so they knew that God sent Him as foretold
in the days when Moses said one like me
would lead you to His kingdom to behold

and thus many believed and followed Him
as He walked through the towns calling His own
they came to see at risk of life and limb
to hear the way of truth that He made known

He healed everyone who by faith believed
so He could do for them as for others
and showed the world goodness could be conceived
to dispel death’s darkness evil gathers

Israel’s leaders knew He had to die
if they were to hold on to their power
and so they conspired with evil to lie
to murder Him at the appointed hour

but the Holy One escaped corruption
when death could never hold His soul in hell
and His resurrection caused disruption
to Satan’s plans to godliness dispel

even though man could never stop sinning
due to a fallen rebellious nature
God had planned a way from the beginning
to give His children hope for the future

so take hold of His gift offered freely
to all who believe He died for your sin
and confess Lord Jesus to them boldly
when His salvation heals you from within

war

Posted January 25, 2017

 

America became soft and battered
by lib’ral forces from within her midst
and her constitution torn and tattered
to guarantee her people not resist

all her claims of freedom and liberty
remain unknown to this generation
who grew up in lib’ral captivity
and were taught their lies for compensation

they never learned critical thinking skills
so as to discern godly truth from lies
and they listened to the media shills
who taught them godliness they must despise

power and fame are their promised reward
for following after lib’ral liars
and they guaranteed goodness be deplored
in order to follow their dark desires

today the battle has come to the fore
with lib’ral forces pretending retreat
while speaking the lies of a DC whore
who sells her service to johns on K street

all our politicians have gone astray
to follow after rapacious desire
in order to America betray
to the lobbyists with whom they conspire

they pretend to want what the people do
in order to get themselves elected
and then reveal the evil they pursue
against the goodness they have rejected

they speak crass words against goodness revealed
and destroy cars and stores to demonstrate
they accuse others of hatred concealed
hiding behind their intolerant hate

how then will justice expose their deceit
and all their lib’ral lunacy repay
when an outsider brings on their defeat
by opening doors for goodness to stay

but this now is just another salvo
in a war that has been raging for years
pray then that many victories follow
for goodness to repay their profiteers

testing a new president

Posted March 6, 2017

 

people are willing to discard the law
that protects life from outside invaders
even from the fanatics they foresaw
coming from afar with death’s crusaders

fantasy informs them that all seems good
and that everyone believes life precious
trust then in others to do as right should
and ignore the evil growing vicious

Alinsky calls to his own from the grave
to destroy godliness wherever found
trusting Obama to goodness enslave
with his ugly activism unbound

hidden heretics strike out from the dark
ready to destroy a new president
speaking sedition’s casual remark
to reveal death’s deadliest dissident

when then many lib’rals attack with lies
and fake news to create contentious strife
to destroy the people evil despise
with calumny’s words to devastate life

many globalists have infiltrated
the halls of the political elite
a shadow government long created
to overcome the world with dark deceit

the battle lines have been drawn for some time
to set in motion a new world order
one which evil’s henchmen portray sublime
while secretly creating disorder

this unseen war rages throughout D.C.
for the soul of our great constitution
some believe that lawlessness can reign free
without ever seeing retribution

others think it protects all innocence
from the eyes and ears of our government
intent on illegal reconnaissance
to silence their opponent’s argument

we now stand on life’s precipice looking
at the dark road leading to tomorrow
wonder whether goodness is abounding
or retreating from our growing sorrow

imagine the tragic consequences
for allowing evil to overcome
by destroying our greatest defenses
without ever heeding the calling drum

why then do we forget to call goodness
to the forefront of the raging conflict
for He is our shield and our righteousness
even when our worship is imperfect

so arise O godly men of glory
to reclaim your sacred honor anew
the time has come to rewrite the story
evil wrote with her long attempted coup

war

Posted April 16, 2017

 

the braying ego of a godless man
echoes through the cities of his nation
he thinks back to when treachery began
and imagined his own coronation

he would imagine evil to drive fear
into the heart of America’s soul
to destroy family and jobs held dear
and to put goodness under his control

the time came when he arose to power
and began to set his enemy’s fate
making his plans for goodness to cower
to the authority of the deep state

he ignored the people’s constitution
any time its demands blocked his desire
to incite oppression’s persecution
and pave the way for darkness to transpire

he then repeated all the lib’ral lies
as a puppet of the global elite
wanting to ensure the coming demise
of freedom and liberty at his feet

he encountered the ISIS brotherhood
starting uprisings in muslim nations
and provided weaponry when he could
for the rebel’s deadly aspirations

as is typical in life time ran out
before he could complete his darkest dream
so he left his followers most devout
to entangle Trump in his deep state scheme

his henchmen stayed hidden in the darkness
ready to destroy the new president
who legislated with godly goodness
to remove ties to the last resident

they started spying on him long ago
as a new presidential candidate
knowing they could use illegal info
to block appointments and intimidate

they created fake news about his life
and all his dealings as a businessman
knowing it would cause him unending strife
in dealing with the D.C. taliban

they even blocked his attempt to repeal
and replace the accursed Obamacare
which Trump promised voters in his new deal
to ensure them better medical care

and even his supreme court nominee
has been threatened with a filibuster
because the obstinate dems disagree
with a judge who already passed muster

but the senate leaders went nuclear
to lower the threshold to fifty-one
and elevate Trump’s legal warrior
in his most important battle yet won

creating new jobs was first on his list
with all the companies he knew before
he contacted friends so none would resist
moving manufacturing back on shore

he lacked the background to command in war
and many doubted he would take control
then Syria demanded he do more
in his military leadership role

he rose to the challenge on the world stage
in response to the use of chemicals
and launched cruise missiles to evil engage
denying deadly tools to radicals

Russia Iran and North Korea railed
against America standing for right
saying our motives would soon be unveiled
determined to world conflict now ignite

psycho Kim threatens a deadly attack
to America fearing for his life
knowing our battle group is coming back
as the world’s avenging surgical knife

whenever America acts from strength
the lib’ral lunatics come to the fore
complaining tolerance at any length
must be shown to those that goodness deplore

open conflict consumes national thought
throughout the countries of the east and west
each tries to understand what evil wrought
teaching muslim youth to goodness detest

know not then that the world is now at war
for the third time in the last hundred years
a time worse than the crusades of before
when once again religion interferes

just enter the code and press a button
and all the infidels can be wiped out
then return home to dinner of mutton
with the desert wilderness all about

a civilized response can then be sent
as a raining shower of destruction
upon the people terror did torment
during the last thousand years of seduction

hatred

Posted June 12, 2017

 

the United Kingdom voted exit
from the European Union of states
because E.U.’s leaders became unfit
to restrain that which darkness procreates

freely the U.K. took in refugees
from war torn nations of the middle east
never expecting the hostilities
death demanded from her merciless beast

they gathered together in a ghetto
so that they might protect their sacred way
and then did heed death’s call to overthrow
all infidels in order to obey

and then with brilliance they decided how
to bring death’s destruction to infidels
by brainwashing their children to kowtow
to their leaders that evil now compels

they have entered unknown territory
where reason has been replaced by the quest
for greatness retold in human glory
and paid for by brainwashed children obsessed

blow yourself up in the market today
and then enter eternal paradise
with seventy virgins for death’s display
of your obedience and sacrifice

see how many infidels you can kill
along the path to earn your prophet’s love
thinking only that your glory fulfill
your destiny to meet greatness above

victory may now seem assured at last
when all the killing takes its toll in fear
spreading death among innocence aghast
at the ugliness your hatred makes clear

but hatred will only bring you sorrow
when you see how governments respond
with overwhelming force on the morrow
for the perpetrators that evil conned

and hatred brings unwanted attention
to your great jihad started long ago
and makes known your current dark intention
to destroy all innocence goodness sow

consider the promise may not be real
before you ever take your final breath
however great your hatred makes you feel
to have such power over life and death

and know that your hatred was born of lies
to turn your heart against all but your own
maybe then you can hear the people’s cries
and understand the heartache you have sown

blunder

Posted July 15, 2017

 

silent demons dance across the night sky
waiting for violence to awaken
hoping to incite evil to comply
with resurrected plans unforsaken

they seek after truth’s destruction daily
in order to perpetuate their lies
and let desire lead them on a journey
to the precipice of their own demise

will then goodness arise out of the ash
of lib’ral policies torn asunder
after many years of socialist trash
have they really made their final blunder
