The State of The Nation

Another year’s upon us
for better or for worse,
the nation mired in crisis,
Leadership paralysis.

Duped by Satan’s evil allies,
who want to blot us off the earth;
more concerned with global warming
than the nukes that are being birthed.

Right and left continue fighting
their results about the same,
it’d be funny if not tragic
but We to must share the blame.

We worship at the movies,
concerts and sporting events,
while everywhere churches closing,
no longer relevant.

We focus on our differences,
rather than how we’re alike;
power’s more important
than doing what is right.

Cops now the bad guys,
soon only crooks’ll have the guns,
riots in our cities,
common decency on the run.

We pay our share of taxes,
some voluntarily,
they call those taxes the lottery,
our new civic responsibility.

Political correctness our gold standard,
It’s how behaviors understood,
anger our prime emotion,
dialogue no longer good.

Children a gift from God
now limited to 1 or 2
but God calls them a blessing,
why do we settle for so few?

We’re killing little babies,
and selling body parts,
our government protects ’em,
our nations lost it’s heart.

Families, the government’s foundation
now giant cracks in its walls;
as the family goes, so the nation
can we survive if families fall?

Is life a giant puzzle
or a maze we travel through,
a game without directions,
sports without some kind of rules?

The time for change is now America,
good and bad completely blurred
history shows when man is ruling
hell on earth is what’s occurred.

All the other gods have fallen
their followers displaced,
the real God sent his Son Jesus
to die in sinner’s place.

There’s no shame in our admitting
that we’ve been badly wrong,
since all of us are fallen,
saved by God’s great grace alone.

Let’s wake up America
time is running out,
and turn our eyes to Jesus,
He’ll remove our sins and doubts.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
