Treasure Island

The Chosen Ones

Oh yes we are
We fight our fights
And give our lives
Wear a badge
A gun, a smile
Drive a truck
Tend a farm
We live next door
Around the world
Guys and gals
All get the call
Love what we do
Do what we love
In Jesus name
We are His stars

The Chosen Ones
Oh yes we are

    The chosen ones are especially hand picked
    to do Gods will. Whether it is feeding the hungry,
    protecting the defenseless or giving of alms to the poor.
    Let us all do our part. An inspiring write Bob! (Report) Reply

    Okay Bobby, but what about those poor starving children on the other side of the planet? They have been forsaken, not chosen. (Report) Reply

    We are all the chosen ones, Robert..otherwise you would not have done what you all claimed to have achieved, because if there is a need which really exists, then only we can go there as helpers as you have written here, so everyone is chosen to suffer and help. (Report) Reply

No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
