Praying Presidents

I guess certain prayers do work

Today only born again candidates want to be president.

Many have actually talked with you.

Tell me god,

Did you whisper in their ears to forget the homeless.

Did you send a heavenly email to call real sinners gay.

Did they get a note “from the desk of god” to ignore the poor.

Why are you sleeping with the rich, didn’t your son despise them?

Oh I see – its for the cause   –    cause ya love us.

A Season of Pale

A Season Of Pale

A season of pale

A reason pure blue

Where are the brights

In this election of rights

Who stands up for those in clouds so black.

Who defends the ill wrapped in white.

The workers who pluck the greens.

Those who struggle under a rainbow of dreams

Those who’s grey matter is not whole.

Who stands up for those lost souls?

A season of pale

A reason pure blue

Where are the brights

In this election of rights

A Sarah pink.

A Mormon Beige.

A Baptist brown.

Or a cowboy clothed in blood red.

They all pander to those with paper of green.

Yet on humanitarian needs their mouths are silent even ready to judge.

Does not the God they serve say “help those in need” or I will judge.

A season of pale

A reason pure blue

Where are the brights
