Physical Cliff

Between God and His people there is a rift.
The legion is in man and like sand intends to shift
humanity from God, who uplifts, and quickly drift,
In a herd mentality over their self made cliff.

Blind and unkind to the light that shined,
Miffed by Satan’s darkened kiss,
Blinded by the light they grew to despise
and in their lies could not recognize.

They took a toke and wrote a vote that spoke,
and sent their sins off to the desert on a goat. 
Crowds turned their heads, as they made their beds,
away from common sense and Pastoral gents.

And if anyone shone a light, them they would fight,
Thinking with all their might that only darkness was right.
A messenger they would shoot to hell-ity hoot,
God was outlawed and given the boot.

He no longer fit in this devilish skit.
He didn’t understand, the Commandments were canned,
Christ was banned, hell’s fires were fanned.
Life was wrecked with a lack of respect.

Life became cheap, the moral cliff was too steep,
An abortion smell came from the well of hell,
People euthanized amid fear filled cries,
Innocents killed and graves were filled.
It’s the guns they said that make people dead!
Not a lack of God, that’s in your head!
Vote for greed, convenience, lust or bust.
Forget God, in us you must trust.
Between God and His people there is a rift,
The Legion is in man and like sand intends to shift
Away from God, who uplifts, and quickly drift
In a herd mentality … over their self made cliff.
A lack of ethics and morality is the reality
Spiritually physical
and physically spiritual in its finality
Ho, ho, ho  … over the cliff we go…
