A Gray Matter - Quite
Black and White...
Do imps 'n'angels fight
in light of day...dark of night?
The evil to hell...the rest - heaven's delight...
is all cut and dried or are there shades of gray in sight?
Sunday school's doctrine belief: follow the rules to receive Jesus' light,
but there's a serpent opportuning "the world's your apple...reach out...take a bite..."
and it's ever so easy to live thinking "carpe diem" and to live our lives for tonight.
Will I bow to society's demands? Will I embrace a hedonist life?
Th'answer to both is tentatively, "I might".
