Conspiracy Theories

Suppose the barrage of apocalyptic theories is true While time is forevermore drawing to its climactic end What? my friend, … just what are you going to do? Will you find some nutcase group with which to blend? Spending the rest of your days in anguish and fright While time is forevermore drawing to a climactic end? Is it possibly true you are letting yourself lose sight-- Believing these conspiracy theories with no authentication, Spending the rest of your days in anguish and fright? Without regard for the danger they cause our nation Creating fear, desperation, and panic throughout the land, Believing these conspiracy theories with no authentication. The greatest fears are fomented by lies gotten out of hand Widely spread through an irresponsible social media Creating fear, desperation, and panic throughout the land. Better to study the ancient documents, the encyclopedia, Suppose the barrage of apocalyptic theories is true Widely spread through an irresponsible social media, What, my friend? … just what are you going to do?

Some people are so busy embracing the implausible, they have lost their minds "Is it possibly true you are letting yourself lose sight-- Believing these conspiracy theories with no authentication, Spending the rest of your days in anguish and fright?" It is sad.

Yes it is, Caren. And the saddest part is that most of these theories are so implausible as to be ludicrous.

Nice write. IMHO, I don’t what others are going to do, but I’m going to trust in the Lord to get me through. Whether I live or whether I die I’m in God’s hands. I know to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.- 2 Corinthians 5:8 God bless you Milt have a blessed and wonderful Saturday.

Thank you for your thoughtful response to my terzanelle, Brother Jacob. I think you have the right idea. I'm not too big on apocalypic ideas and prophesy. Too many times they have been proven wrong. I'll just trust the Creator Of It All knows best! You have a nice weekend, Jacob.

Nicely done Milt...the repeating lines are done so smoothly as to be undetectable. And the final question.....one we all must answer.

Thank you so much, John. Yes, I think the subject matter leant itself to the terzanelle format. I enjoyed writing it, and of course, I agree with the message.
