When They Come

When they come

and come they will

don' pay too much

attention is how they get you

no eye contact is better

they enter that way

like it or not

vigilance pays

the pipers' tune

hypnotic as it seems

is just another trick

you need to mention

the secret name

name above all names

to set you free.


Some say they are

in bondage

to all sorts of things

in bondage to sin

in bondage to Jesus


I thought freedom

was the operative word here?

So what is freedom

freedom for freedoms sake

freedom to be totally unrestrained

free to serve

or just free  to be

whoever you are?  ?  ?
