When senators are sin-ators,
Vice presidents are vice,
When governors are minotaurs,
And trusted leaders lice,

Consider well spoiled milk you drink –
It’s rotten at the top.
You take a sip; you smell the stink,
And then your drinking stop.

But at the bottom of the well,
Where you disdained to go
The stink and spoil there also dwell,
E’en in the common Joe.

Our fate is sealed; gone is the rule of law.
The court has taken on itself a role
Of changing words to legislate; its claw
So proud in reason as it takes control.

The source that gives it power is ignored –
It does not matter what a word might say,
Nor that its range is roped – it cuts the cord.
It bends words since it feels a certain way.

We are a Sodom waiting for the fire,
Gomorrah for the brimstone’s choking smell.
We’re tolerant of sin because the choir
We’re singing in wears robes that come from hell.

God’s holy Court will soon in judgment sit
And lowly court will get its final writ.


Prov.14:34 Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin
is a reproach to any people.

……….The Sudden Flame

In Noah’s day, all men then lost
The badge of shock or shame,
Hearts hardened by the line they’d crossed.
Gone was the sudden flame.

But one tree stood, not swept away
By all the wicked rush.
It saw the rot, and in dismay
For all their sins did blush.
