Easter McFeaster

Your treasure your pleasures, Indulgent enjoyment, You follow whoever, And praise the flamboyant. The colors and baskets, The eggs all a plenty, The project, you task it, The purpose is empty.

Broken Hearts

Oh, how hearts breaking. Sinners are faking, Lies they are making, Love they’re forsaking. Broken hearts aching. Liars pretending, And not hearts mending, And not love sending, Sin they’re defending, Truth they are bending. Shooting their arrows, Not good bedfellows, Not on road narrow, Lies they do swallow, All this foreshadowed. Immoral are they, E’en … Continue reading Broken Hearts
