Somewhere between paradise and diaster
“Going To Hell From The Pews”
Ought to be today’s hot breaking news
For more then a few in the pew are acting like sinners do
Acting like the Almighty never saved more than a few

First there’s the holier than thou saint
Acting like they were never ever an “ain’t”
Holding their noses all high up in the air
Forgetting they ever used to be right there
That place were doing right is still a battle
Where thing come to make you faith rattle
Where falling short and getting up again seem to be routine
Yet they were right there before they became so pure & pristine
If truth be told they have to admit they still falter on some things
For to each and every one of us some temptation shall cling

Next sitting out in the pews is the “I Just Got Be Me” saint
Who covers themselves in the hues of “Let’s Be Real” paint
They loudly proclaim “God knows they’re trying for sure”
And they say “Who can really be a completely new creature”
Forgetting that the real deal is He died for the sins of the world
And it’s possible for all to be a saved and sanctified boy or girl
Furthermore just being their same ole’ self or keeping it too real
Might just send their real self straight to the real place called hell
Why won’t they let the old man die and give space for the new man to rise
So they’ll be able to stand for something without a need for compromise

Lastly out in the pews is the outright hypocritical saint
Telling everyone that its time is to get right but they ain’t
Living a double life, one of salvation, and one of pure sin
Living the devils life all through the week till the weekend
But when Sunday comes their life is a totally different story
For then they are all about giving the Almighty some glory
But what is done in the dark will eventually come to light
And we will see the “Saints gone wild video” every night
For no one man can serve two separate masters successfully
Cause one will sooner or later take over control completely

If in these lines you found yourself in any way
I encourage you to take heed and get right today
But don’t you dare think I sit in judgment of you
For this humble author found myself in the pew too

The cast of characters are familiar, and you painted a vivid picture of those who aren't really fooling anyone except themselves.

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
