Obama My King

When God makes a plan for a king
It is God’s plan not the King’s
When a king strays from true purpose 
As an unfavorable appendage growth 
Turning asunder God’s intended nature for rule 
Whereupon pompous self –gluttony bellows
Bellowing for greater power, for riches the more, or forever lasting glory
Doth not a King make unfavorable war with patriots of his sovereignty?
For as a King demands thou shall- when God said thou shalt not
What citizenry stands silent for such self-proclamations?
When the king’s words bare no desirable fruits 
How doth the Kingdom’s  subjects eat?
When only the influential- whose lips whisper directly into the King’s ear
Or only the Dukes and Earls with deep pockets afford the King’s favor
Doth the King’s jester make gayety the suffering of his common
And grow tiresome of the hunger’s plea , or  the widow’s need, 
Will not  the laymen’s  voice be heard above the ten percent?
As a King sets forth his intention but nay a one becomes reality
Doth not the people cry into their Lord God for a savior?
A new King!  
A better King! 
A righteous King for the people!
For this pompous  King has short number his days like morning dew on Mayflies’ wings
Now doth the citizenry gather at the King’s gate shouting!
We of November will remember!
And purge thee from thy thrown!

    Powerful poetry Mark and as a conservative I agree but I must take care not to be a hypocrite because I have lashed out at liberal opinions here, particularly in blogs because race, religion and politics are the subjects that most quickly will create discord and I have done plenty of that too recently. Let me say what no one should be able to argue with. I pray that whoever wins this November will bring us all back together and do what is best for the country in the long term and that is not someone who pits us against one another.

    I as many Christ followers grew quite upset with our elected President when he openingly supported the issue of gay marriage. Wither you stand in favor or against such is not the issue. The issue is that my President did when such a matter is based Biblically against it. Are his words factfull- then let him deny his wife and marry a man. I think not, but his intentions are based upon procuring the all mighty dallar.
