WAR OF WARS


The world’s losing its greatest war
Her most important fight
We’ve casualties from shore to shore
As darkness battles Light

Many are wounded many die
There’s overall despair
But few can see the reason why
Chaos is everywhere

Nobody wants God anymore
The world’s full of deceit
Decency’s gone and locked the door
And love is in retreat

Darkness penetrates everywhere
Wickedness plagues the mind
Faith’s departed leaving despair
To lead those lost and blind

Until today they’re so content
Complacence sings its song
Faithfulness is so far spent
They don’t know right from wrong

Such foolishness is taught in schools
Stupidity wears a crown
The church is just a place for fools
And wisdom spirals down

Nothing remains but doom and gloom
Where no one’s left to blame
Yet hell remains with so much room
For all who die in shame

Still fools believe there is no God
That death’s the final end
With this in mind its not so odd
The devil’s such a friend…….

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.
