God Has The Final Say



Emperor Nero
killed
and killed
and killed
and got tired of killing,
and then God killed him.
God has the final say.

Emperor Nero
killed  apostle Peter
he killed apostle Paul
he killed others
he killed Christians
he killed Christians,
and then
God killed him.

Emperor Nero
killed his mother
killed his wife
 killed his sister
and
then
God
 killed him.

Manasseh
 killed
and killed
 and killed
 and killed
and killed
and killed
 and killed
and killed;
 killed prophet Isaiah;
and then God killed him.

Herod killed
 apostle James;
and then God eliminated him.

The Jews killed Jesus Christ
and God instigated Hitler
to kill them.

Saddam Hussein killed his enemies and detractors
and then God
 killed him
by hanging.

Idi Amin
killed others...

After killing others...
God does the final killing.
God has the final say.
