A Fool Is Fair Game

A Fool Is Fair Game

Wake up my friend, let shine your light

We need to take a stand

The day of Christ nears in sight

Our Bridegroomís close at hand

The church is not the only place

Where Christians show they care

But where the devil shows his face

When in Godís name we dare!

The devilís loose and on the prowl

His teeth are fletched to bite

Donít run if when you hear him howl

Stand firm in Christ and fight

The loathsome cur will turn and run

Weíll close and bar the door

Heís not a match against Godís Son

Of this we can be sure

Be warned my friend, the devilís real

Heís out to reap manís soul

Heíll place on us his evil seal

If tempted from our goal

Who run ahead, or lag behind

Become the devilís game

Make no mistake heís out to find

Each fool whoíll bear his name

Without The Lord inside to rule

Satan, will seldom move

For evil thrives inside a fool

And has no more to prove

Be wise if Christ should call my friend,

Shout ďYes my God Iím hereĒ

Then when your knees to Jesus bend

Watch Satan run in fear.....

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.
