Bass Ackward

Iran’s bent on destruction;
Our response, release tons of cash,
They won’t use their nukes to destroy us,
Sounds like our brains been completely smashed?

Planned Parenthood kills with impunity,
The killers all remain free;
The people for life get arrested,
The lack of justice’s easy to see.

Hands up the cry in Ferguson
Obama, Holder came to their aid;
LaVoy’s hands clearly visible
Why for him no outcry made?

Our President ignores Chris Kyle
But welcomes traitor Bergdahl,
Exchanging 5 Taliban for him,
Chris imprisoned in a sepulchral.

We’re legalizing marijuana,
While trying to outlaw guns,
Heterosexual marriages floundering,
Commitment perceived as no fun.

It’s wrong to call evil good,
If you do a price will be paid;
For Israel it meant destruction,
For us does judgment await?

Petraeus was careless with an email,
Hillary hundreds, more erased,
The General convicted,
Queen Clinton a presidential race.

Feminists rightfully call for fairness,
Yet quiet about misogyny abroad
Pornography marginalizes women
It’s past time for justice for ALL.

Conservatives have issues with welfare
Except for Wall Street and banks;
Liberals for taxing and spending
Even while the economy tanks.

We once were a country of equals
Now divided rich and poor,
The gap is rapidly widening
The national debt continues to soar.

Which politician walked on water?
Who brought Lazarus back to life?
Our nation looks for a savior,
But mere man will always bring strife.

Thinking man has all the answers
Is absurd as history shows,
All people are sinful beings,
Self-absorbed, lacking control. 

Our founding fathers appeared to be godly
Yet let slavery slide through the cracks;
In the end all men will fail us,
Only God can bring justice back.

Let’s wake up and smell the roses
This once great nation, now obscene,
Our moral compass’ badly broken
The future nightmares, not sweet dreams.

The elections won’t make much difference,
Compared to God we’re all outlaws
God please forgive our rebellion
‘Cause at best we’re badly flawed.

As a nation we’ve faced great problems,
Natural disasters, wars, and such,
But the real question we must answer
Will America thrive or simply bust?

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.
