This week Eagle Rising is displaying the pro-life, anti-abortion poetry of one of our readers – Mr. L.B. Strawn.
I AM NOT A PROPHET
I am not a prophet, nor am I a prophet’s son,
But–the demise of the U.S.A. surely has already begun.
The U.S.A., as I’ve known it, has faded into the past,
And the coming of the demise, through evil, has been cast.
When murder has become so meaningless that we’re killing our unborn,
And aiding many of our elderly to die, our future becomes forlorn.
When homosexuals and lesbians roam the streets at will,
When “so called” Christian churches allow their pernicious swill;
When lying and cheating are rampant among the rulers of our land,
And divorce is the rule of the day, and crime has the upper hand;
When sinful pleasure is increasing and morality has decayed,
Before the almighty hand of GOD, the cost cannot be defrayed.
They both faded out of existence, for GOD had sounded their death knell.
Do you think the U.S. of A. is any better than either of them,
When we turn to sin and dis-obey those good moral laws from HIM?
SO—even though I’m no prophet, nor am I a prophet’s son,
History should teach us a lesson–that sin, we should always shun.
For, if we fail to live morally and commit such heinous sins,
If we fail to turn our lives back to GOD and, our evil, we fail to cleanse,
We haven’t learned history’s lesson–and history will never defeat itself,
Then man, in his sinful folly, will always help it to repeat itself.
