Rome Rising

 

 

 

Rome Rising

 

In the early hours

I saw beyond my walls…

 

 

Football, Baseball, the Concert Hall

lined up in stadiums

one and all

 

shouting, screaming, dancing wild-

each one

for himself,

man, woman, and child

 

Busy with irreverent hearts

this is where the end does start

 

I see it now through this darkened haze

each Commandment

and role it plays

 

keeping mortals

free to see

 

The One True God

and His Majesty

 

But Satan has them blinded still

and try as they might

they can’t get their fill-

emaciated

all do starve

 

preferring their own

images carved

 

Turning from the living God

Preferring not the Shepherds Rod

 

Sowing seeds of fear and hate

he drives them hard,

he knows his fate

 

They are divided

without and within

 

captured

captivated

denying sin

 

falling into utter despair

they turn from the One

who truly cares

 

We Sacrifice to Moloch,

heed the call

 

Shouting

from the darkened halls

 

Give us Barabbas

Give us Saul,

 

Give us one who’ll

rule us all

 

then stone him, kill him

Crucify-

 

Truth, Love and Justice from on high

 

We gather round in this new Rome

in coliseum within our home

 

gasping, staring as once before

echoes of the lion’s roar

 

I see the  long corridor

walk down hall

past the beasts

through the door –

 

into the pages of history

 

our place in time-

destiny…

 

Here Ye, Here Ye,

The  final call

 

return to Eden

before the fall…

 

Football, Baseball, the Concert Hall

line them up, one and all.
