One Nation Under God   4 comments

homeless-and-addiction

I went to the Chick-Fil-A
And wanted the Jesus
People to stop talking.

“Where did you get those shoes”,
Asked Christian number one.
“I bet you paid for those!”

Would she still have liked them
If Christian number two
Would have said, “The Goodwill”?

There is a homeless man
Under the stars and stripes
Looking to work for food.

Where will he sleep tonight?
“Not in our parking lot.
We accept no vagrants.”

I wonder if Christian
One or Christian two would
Go without shoes to help.

  1. I really like this one. I feel as if it describes a lot of things going on in this country, all too well. Keep up the good work! I am proud of you!

    • Thank you! You inspired me to start this blog. I am very proud of you! Your have continually updated your Youtube channel for the last several months. If you can keep up with such a big commitment, then so can I!

  2. Well done! It flows well and as zombiemom621 mentioned it describes the tone the country is in right now.

    • Thanks, Dale! The wealth discrepancy in the United States is astonishing. It saddens me to know that it will probably get much worse before any changes are made.

      Do you have a Word Press blog? If you do, send me a link and I will follow it.
