Noah - Poem by JOY JOHNSON

WHY ARE THEY THIS WAY
LIEING, STEALING, NAME CALLING, FALSE TALES TOLD
LORD I NEED YOU TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND
WHAT AM I TO DO I AM A MAN OF FAITH
AM I GOOD ENOUGHT TO NOT COMMIT THOSE TYPE OF ACTS
ACTIONS OF MANKIND I ASK YOU THE CREATOR
WHY IS IT THIS WAY SURELY YOU ARE GOD AND I KNOW I AM NOT CRAZY

NOAH, A GOOD MAN TALKS TO GOD
PEOPLE ARE CRAZED FULL OF VIOLENCE AND BETRAYAL
WICKEDNESS, ADULTRY, FORNICATION IS WHAT THEY ARE MADE OF

NOAH NOW CONCERNED FOR HIS FAMILY FEARS GOD

NAY WILL I COMMIT TO DO THE OFFENSES MANKIND PORTRAY

GOD HOW MUST WE LIVE
WHAT MUST WE DO OR GO, IS THERE SOMEWHERE ELSE TO JOURNEY
GOD SPOKE TO NOAH GIVING HIM INSTRUCTIONS TO BUILD AN ARK

NOAH GOT STARTED GATHERINGS PIECES OF WOOD BRANCHES FROM TREE BARKS
THEM THE PEOPLE CAME OUT LOOKING, ALL OF THEM BEGAN TO GATHER AROUND
THEY COULD'NT FIGURE OUT WHO NOAH WAS TALKING TO CALLING HIM A FOOL

THEY LAUGHED SO HARD TILL THEIR SOULS WERE WEARY
THEN THEY WENT BACK TO THEIR HOUSE'S AND PARTIED UP VIOLENCE
THEY DRUNK, THEY SCREWED AND FOUGHY THROUGH-OUT THE NIGHT
WHEN MORNING CAME NOAH WAS NO WHERE IN SIGHT

THE RAIN CAME DOWN POURING HARD AND FAST
THEN A LITTLE BIT OF ROCKS THUMPED HARD ON THEIR HEADS
NOT KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS
SOMEONE SHOUTED OUT IT'S HAIL FROM NOAH'S GOD

NOAH TOOK HIS WIFE HIS SONS THEIR WIVES TOO
THEN GATHERED EVERY CREATURE, ANIMAL AND BIRDS IN SETS OF TWO'S
HE GATHERED FOOD AND GRAIN FOR HIS FAMILY AND ALL THAT CAME ALONG
AS THEY HURRIED TO ENTER THE ARK A LARGE VESSEL THAT HE BUILT

THEN ALL THE TOWNS PEOPLE FIGURED OUT NOAH BUILT A VESSEL
THEY QUICKLY GATHERED THEIR BELONGINGS RUNNING TO WHERE IT WAS NESTLED
THEY BANGED AND HIT ALL AROUND THE ARK
BUT THE RAIN FELL FASTER HARDER AS THE ARK TOOK A FLOAT

SO IT SEEMED THAT IT WAS'NT QUITE FUNNY AFTER ALL
CONSTANTLY NAME CALLING HIM CRAZY ILL MINDED WISHING HIM TO FALL
NOAH WAS SMART GOD TOO WHO KNEW JUST WHAT HE HAD TO DO
HE USED AND SPARED NOAH TO END ALL HOE NONSENSE
VIOLENCE, PEOPLE THEN STARTYED UP A WHOLE NEW CREW

IT RAINED SO IT IS SAID FOR 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS
ALL THE LAND ON THE EARTH WAS NOWHERE IN SIGHT
IT WAS A CLEAR DAY AS THE SUN SHOWN IT'S BRIGHT LIGHT
WHEN NOAH TOOK A RAVINE THAT FLEW HIGH OUT OF SIGHT
HOPELESSLY IT RETURNED SHOWING WATER WAS STILL EVERYWHERE

DAYS LATER NOAH PULLED OUT A DOVE
WHO FLEW HIGH UP PASSING TOWARDS THE SUN

DAYS LATER THE DOVE FLEW RIGHT BACK
CARRYING A LEAF OF A OLIVE TREE BARKS BRANCH

NOAH'S ARK CAME TO A REST
UP HIGH IN THE MOUNTAIN CALLED MOUNT ARARAT
GOD STARTED A WHOLE NEW LIFE ON EARTH FOR THE FAMILY OF NOAH
TELLING HIM TO BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPY HIS FAVOR STARTED ALL OVER
