Even Fools Listen Sometimes.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

The world turns, her children rebel

The devil does his round

All but a few, believe in hell

Where Satan will be found


Of God, there’s little fear now

The devil’s but a tale

Still, to Jesus, a few could flow

If faith weren’t weak or stale


Evident; is the falling away

Churches have false ideals

The closer draws The Rapture day

The devil dances reels


False prophets lie most everywhere

Leaders seek pots of gold

Thinking The Lord God answers prayer

To such a wicked fold


But lambs still answer Jesus’ call

Seek truth and Heaven’s love

Many will fail countless fall

God’s righteous mark above


These words are right and deadly true

The world should lend an ear

Hear God’s Spirit telling you

The living One to fear


God’s judgement day will surely dawn

In righteousness, He’ll stand

Where only those in Christ reborn

Will reach The Promised Land


So take a look close deep inside

Consider hell is real

Repent of all you’ll rather hide

And pray God’s mercy Seal.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
