“First and Last” – Poetry

angel and lyre

Entertainment reaching filthier depths

Jet-setting prophets with pulpits of gold

Woe to the child! Woe to the parent!

Repetitive sales pitch a thousand years old

There’s a Devil in the books, screens, and boards

Dressed up in words of trendy expression

He wants to rule forever and a day

Camouflaged with stylish, brand-name presentation

The ego is made the idol

Ever remember, this too shall pass

Lies of the ages made new

They never say your first breath is your last

They said to sit, let the world go by

I knew a girl from a far away town

“Make money, ponder, give us your riches!”

I’m not the person I used to be now

Who might be behind the curtain?

We’re expecting an earthquake and a monsoon

The Queen of Hearts and Drama?

The Gods have rung in seven years of doom

We all reap what we sow

And the only way to carry on

Fools! How can you escape the Cosmic Book?

Hearkening to Gabriel’s song

As truth is hard but freeing

If you agree, then stand fast

Dear Lord, “take me one more round”!

But remember: your first breath is always your last.
