WORLD Plans To Celebrate.
The poor proliferate, while the rich get richer
at the expense of the poor they've created.
The hope of the young is being ruined.
One in three marriages end in divorce.
Governments force mothers to go out to work,
while millions of men remain unemployed.
And nations are planning millennium celebrations?
Political tyrants drive others to work
for a pittance,
but reward themselves with obscene salaries.
Their police forces are as corrupt as they are.
Prisons overflow with murderers, wife-beaters,
and rapists. Racism is rampant. (2)
And communities plan millennium celebrations?
God is sacrificing millions of Ethiopians and people of
surrounding lands, by famine, disease, war and captivity. (3)
In many countries ethnic groups slaughter one another.
Demonstrations of disunity and terrorism are commonplace.
Rapacious greed is out of control.
Many are forced out of their homes or are murdered.
And yet, the world plans to celebrate the millennium?
Practicing homosexuals and paedophiles are rife, (5)
As are school bullies and those pushing drugs.
Wickedness on earth is now full grown.
Our Lifegiver is held in contempt by all nations.
While celebrating 2000 years since the birth
would it be the time for the "thief" to arrive
to judge this wicked fruitage while
they celebrate it?
