Paid In Full

P ierced for our transgressions,
A crown of thorns upon His head.
I ndecent agony Jesus suffered,
D ying to give us life instead.

I niquities demanded payment.
N one of us worthy to pay the price.

F aithful Father provided ransom,
U nfailing love turned into sacrifice.
L aying down His life for sinners,
L isten: Jesus paid sin's full price.

    DIDN'T I EVER TELL YOU THAT JESUS DIDN'T REALLY WALK ON WATER...HE WAS SIMPLY STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF A HUGE PUDDLE AND GOT ENOUGH GROUPIES TO BUY INTO HIS RUSE, AND AS FOR WATER INTO WINE....IF HIS DADDY, INDEED, WAS GOD ALL HIS DAD HAD TO DO WAS INVENT GRAPE KOOL-AID?...SHOOT, EVEN I COULD HAVE PULLED THAT RUSE OFF WITH APLOMB...THIS POEM, NONETHELESS, AS USUAL IS BITTER SWEET WHILE IT'S AUTHOR IS SIMPLY SWEET AND TALENTED AS HER GOD MEANT FOR HER TO BE, WHICH IS HUGELY! KEEP DOING WHAT YOU DO TO ME, YOUR POETRY MAKES ME FEEL INFERIOR WHICH THUSLY PROVOKES ME TO KEEP WRITING POEMS THAT ARE AS PROVOCATIVE AND I LIKED THE WAY YOU USED THE FIRST LETTER...I HAD A POEM LIKE THAT ABOUT A CHICK NAMED LISA BUT I AM PROHIBITED FROM ENTERING IT BECAUSE OF WHAT THE LETTERS OF HER NAME MEAN.....NO PROFANITY AND STARS DON'T FIT THE ANGER IN THAT POEM....YOUR'S 4 AS LONG AS YOUR GOD DECIDES TO STOP SOME MORONIC LEADER OF A COUNTRY FROM PRESSING THE RED BUTTON PHREEPOETREE ~free cee!~
