Sodom's Market Place....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

Are you a one that wants it all?

All that there is to get

When neighbours fail, when others fall

You suffer no regret


You’ shout, you dance, your heart will sing

That all is fine and well

Self-property is everything

Regardless of its smell


Craving, lusting for more and more

Houses, planes, boats and cars

With wife, women, common whore

More coinage than is stars


The wicked seek a hiding place

A blind lost fool can see

A cesspool a sheer disgrace

Christ Jesus died to free


How evil has this world become

Like Sodom in the past

Worse than Gomorrah’s vilest scum

Before their dye was cast


Till man’s afraid to walk the street

Murderers, rapists, thieves

The dreadful ruthless filth we meet

Are more than trees have leaves


A child may have a knife a gun

Inflicting so much pain

Electric Tasers people stun

Till robbed, raped or slain


Surely Jesus must soon return

The piper, each must pay

Then all but His, in hell will burn

Forever and a day…..

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.
