Wake up and smell the blood

There is a light on my front porch I turned it on in memory
Not just for the baby Caylee
But for all of the children who die daily
 
We mourn and cry and are justly outraged
When we hear of such atrocities and read of them on every page
But it is not just the children it is people of every age
 
Senseless killing and blatant neglect
Marriages and homes hourly wrecked
But in satans world what else would you expect
 
Watch out for number 1 cause no 1 is watching for you
Respect is earned through violence and the brand name on your shoe
The kingdoms of his world he offers over to you and in exchange you give your soul 
cause you've nothing better to do
 
Desensitized and mesmerized by shiny things and fame
We worship at his alter as his angels of light blaspheme Gods name
We play and seek after every hypnotizing game
 
Blind we are and blind we lead
Not seeing not caring not hearing the pleas
We talk and do nothing as the innocent continue to bleed

    so true....many will be blatant and pricket for gay marriage. Arrest someone who can't/won't feed an annimal but no one cries for the aborted babies and neglected children out there. shame on us.

    I am enjoying reading the very diverse poetry here this morning in my Soupland. Words pouring onto paper from poets souls. What a joy to be able to sit and read such wonderful poetry for awhile today. Have a very good day Bobb. Love, Carol
