Searching Dung Heaps


Searching hearts for decency and integrity amongst
unscrupulous, discriminating people is hopeless.

Lies abound, faceless rumors are portrayed and
spat upon innocent victims.

There is no fairness in this world because there
are too many unfair people in charge of power.

Only minions of perplexing vexatious questions
are left in dung heaps with no one willing to
clean them up.

If done, it would eventually proclaim the return
of honesty and truthfulness in this decadent,
decaying world of today.

In other word - Do hell with the values, ethics and ethos .......... what a modern world! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! But there will be an end to this hell. (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
