No Politician Or Devil.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Some nations with gun, with knives, and lash

Scheming with brutish force

Will shoot, will hang, will cut and slash

On religion’s wayward course


Some politicians of the west

With tongues forked sleek and long

With sweeter words than Heaven’s blessed

Will sing their scheming song


Such; with gradual degree

Appearing, subtly kind

Will slide smooth their party’s decree

Unto the walking blind


Much warmer than the sun in May

Cooler than winter snow

The devil slinks, prowling his prey

Though be it snake-like slow


To kill, prevent a praying child

Devils will stop at nought

Before a sinner’s reconciled

And true salvation’s caught


To Heaven is One Way alone

Beneath a blood-soaked cross

When Jesus rolls away death’s stone

And takes our shameful dross


No statesman, dictator, queen or king

If Christ they don’t believe

However good they dance and sing

Nothing will life achieve


Yet sinners who rob, rape, or kill

Repent; from Satan’s way

Who seek God’s face who’ll do God’s will

Will live as kings one 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.
