We're Being Bombarded

We're Being Bombarded

We're being bombarded with verbal pollution
With the first letter beginning with F
You'd think man has lost his senses
And his vocabulary has nothing left
So swift they're drawn to the foulness
Satan has control of the hearts
And gives them utterance to curse unashamedly
I don't think that's very smart

I hear the excuse over and over
O everyone is doing it today
Well that doesn't make it right to me
Our conversation should be better...okay
Why should verbal pollution
Be the standard as such these days
Can't they see that the father of lies
Gets them to talk this way

We're going the way of Noah
Doing what's right in our own eyes
Eating, drinking, and being merry
They're in for a big surprise
God says let no corrupt communication
Proceed from your lips my friend
If your heart hasn't been changed by Christ
Your cursing becomes repitition

If you want to see just how strong you are
Try to curtail your tongue
Try to keep it from uttering foul words
For it's there the battle is won
Only a changed heart will give you
The victory over the desire to curse
Check your heart the next time one erupts
It's verbal pollution at worse!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
