Not You Again


I made you a queen
You never wanted it
I saw you again
playing with the dogs
I took you back
Remove the fleas, ticks
And washed you clean
I elevated you to the
Seventh star
Adorned you with more
Ornament made of gold
And diamond
Now, you are in the mud
Playing with pigs
I'm striping off your crown
For people to see your shame
And will give your honor to
Someone who will respect it
And not you again.

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
