The Elections

How do you vote for someone
You hope your kids won’t turn out like;
One supports killing children,
Abandoned her subordinates, let ’em die.

The other perhaps is a misogynist,
His words have cut, abused.
Both lie when the truth would help them,
Have tons of dirty lucre only they can use.

It doesn’t matter if they’re liberal
Or conservative in their convictions;
Most are singing from th’same hymn book
And, when it counts, just politicians.

But lest we get discouraged
Let’s remember who calls the shots
King Jesus rules the nations
He is sovereign, they are not.

His name’s not on the ballot,
But He voted all the same,
And kept the law on our behalf,
Absorbed our punishment and shame.

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.
