The Buck Stops Here - Poem by James Tipp

From the beginning to the end
Your vision was unique
You understood completely
Your wisdom unending.
Yet I dare to ask “Why?
In the beginning you said
“ In my image”
The apple the serpent
You knew you saw, Why?
You chose a people
They failed in every way
You knew they would
Why choose them?
You sent men to say
“ Thus says the Lord”
Nobody listened
You knew the would’nt
So why send them?
The cross your ultimate
Why?
From the beginning to the end
Your vision was unique
No wonder we speak of mystery
I for one say why bother?
Why apportion blame?
Sinners fallen short!
Yet you knew
From the beginning to the end
Your vision was unique
On the gates of heaven
Should be written
The buck stops here.
