Copla Siete: This Bad Guy World


Watch those who say they serve God most
They’ll boast their God stands for peace
And for Him – kill!

Watch those who clearly wish to boast
Theirs is the ONLY sacred lease
Yet show ill-will

To all those who likewise proclaim
ONE GOD – not their own – with disdain
Yet kill their own

And in killing their own, they maim
Their OWN GOD who will not even deign
To help His own!

    Hi Sandra! Thanks very much, but don't say it out so loud. The guys who love to kill might take out a - you know what - to notch up one more for a choice place in Heaven for themselves. Be seeing your own soon, I hope. Every good wish. Wignesan (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
