thirteen minutes with...

You gave us free will
But why nuclear devices?
Do you play games with our lives?
A score of one million to nil!!
Man we're up the creak 
And we're not collecting spices
The media's killed the flavour
And here come the chopping knives.

What is our potential for the near future?
No one seems to care, is our time nearly up?
I don't think you have the bottle to be so abrupt!
Many of your representatives appear all too corrupt,
While you what, check up on our graces?
Why are we so dumb and ignorant and hung up on races?
Killing for oil and territorial spaces, while we're hypnotised
By what, white teeth on their evil smiling faces?

Do you take pride in what you have created?
We’re so grateful; your teachings are sidelined,
While the horned goat is consecrated, 
They have young children idly worshiping the antithesis of 999,
So my one real question to you, my source...
Do you not feel that the evil must be purged...berated
Back into chaos, obscurity
Expelled by the light of divinity
A place for creativity to flourish, our children to be nourished?
Because into oblivion I sink...I see no serenity.

    ... thirteen minutes, to 'push back'... to make things better... 999 + 9 = 36 as in 360 circles... and 666 + 6 = 24 as in golden hOurs...

    "I see no serenity."... I do, when good people like you, me, us, express ourselves with such passion as you have here, it makes me realize that this is what causes positive 'motion'...being this outstandingly negative for good reason. You are grippingly sincere here and I'm glad to see someone does care as much as you. :) Well done my friend.

    Of course He does, but the only problem is, He gave us free will. Is this what He meant to create? Of course not. There is no serenity for God either, no peace, no happiness. Could a parent be happy to see his child suffer? Nuclear device is created by man, nuclear energy is created by God. We choose how we use God's creation, and thus, also need to take responsibility. Thought provoking write, I like that a lot. Thank you for sharing. Caroline.

    If the leaders are astray, the flock will follow. However, there's a flock that follows them not.
