Stop The Music

Be still, He said, know that I am God
Didn’t you get the memo? Second Timothy 3
Or are your head phones turned too high?
Know this, He said, that in the last days
Perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their
Own selves. Covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers,
Disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.
Without natural affection; don’t look at me like that.
He said it. Trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent,
Fierce, despisers of those that are good. Traitors,
Heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than
Lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying
The power thereof; from such turn away. That’s what He said.
And that’s the short list. Have you walked across that desert
In Israel? You know the story of Lot, don’t you?
Baldwin said, it won’t be water, but fire next time.
Or was that God? At any rate, it’s getting hot round here.
I mean, how long can a polar bear tread water?
Are those children, with markings and cuttings,
Piercing and super sized to the point that one cannot
Recognize Mama’s girl and Daddy’s boy, but of course
They can’t recognize Mommy or Daddy either.
And they reach out with trusting hands, and fall into
Perverted arms, waiting to heap their lust upon them.
Are those your children? Gyrating in 3D. Are you witnessing
The horror of this reality show? Didn’t you get the memo? Ps.
58:3 “the wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray
As soon as they are born, speaking lies.” Headphones
Turned up too high? Can’t you hear their cries, as you
Allow their world to be turned upside down, their
Innocence lost to vendors and politicians, and did
You say you’re Christians? Stop the music. It’s praying time.
