ONE FOR THE BELIEVERS A BALLAD TO THE BIBLE

ONE FOR THE BELIEVERS-- THANK YOU TO THE BIBLE.


Here's a Ballad to the Holy Bible,
Learning Word of God we're liable,
Reading  precepts to be kind,
Humble devotion springs to mind.

Thank you, bible, for inspiring message,
Advent of our Lord did presage,
Reading precepts to be kind,
Humble devotion springs to mind.

Thank you, bible, for divine healing,
Peace and love, daily our feelings,
Reading precepts to be kind,
Humble devotion springs to mind.

Thank you, bible, for Gospel Faith,
Sacred truths Jehovah sayeth,
Reading precepts to be kind,
Humble devotion springs to mind.

Thank you, bible, for Light we're grateful,
Timeless and supreme, so forceful,
Reading precepts to be kind,
Humble devotion springs to mind.

That's the Bible Ballad, thank you letter,
Don't know how to write it better,
Reading precepts to be kind,
Humble devotion springs to mind.

Ballad of the Progressive Revelator

He is screaming from his soapbox again.
His voice carries heavily through the air, 
like a cloud of sulfur, soot, and disrepute.

He is old and he is fuming,
and he must do what old folks
do best, other than croak.

He must yell at the lost souls
of the newest generation
of degenerates and sinners

who will all surely burn in hell,
who will die writhing in agony,
and none of whom give even half a shit.

He may not even know the source of his
vitriol, but goddamn it, its there,
and he is going to spew it everywhere.

These are not opinions.  There will be no discussion.
Our own soapboxes will remain unused.
Our politics all silent and subdued.  
We do not want to make a scene.
