Sin



There is something worse than covid creeping in,
its the darkness known as sin.

Can you not see the signs of the times,
look it all the violent crimes?

A woman gets raped on the subway,
but no one pushes the rapist away.

Instead they record it with their phone;
the woman might has well have been alone.

No one calls the police; they just don’t want to defund them, they want them to cease.

Protest if you must, but there’s no need to riot;
you can keep it peaceful and quiet.

Youngsters are protesting, but they don’t know why.
For the coming of the Lord is nigh.

We’re living in a time when God’s bringing to light,
every deed that was done in the night.

Call me crazy or misunderstood, but these are the days where good is called evil and evil is called good.
