Another Monday morning in the autumn; true colors

America conquered polio,
And "beat" butter with oleo.
We vanquished TB,
But then came TV -
With the stuff that's worse than the plague.
While protesters burned the flag,
The Flag of our Fathers, hipsters made fun of our mothers and daughters.
O they think they have God on the run.

"Boys and girls" is a phrase verboten,
When Truth is a term long forgotten.
"Male and female" He made the genders,
But political correctness is going on benders.
Genders? They say now there are five.
So can you help the Truth stay still alive?
In a world of fifty shades of grey?
O happy day? O happy day?
Or has the time of great dying begun?

Two hundred thousand have died in Syria,
And thousands more in Libya.
A funny thing happened on the way to Utopia;
Millions died in Ukraine and Estonia.
So how many bullets are flying today?
How many children are dying today?
How many years have to go by,
Before they see the signs in the sky?
The God of Israel is not on the run!

It's another Monday morning in America,
And the big news is from Comerica,
A morning after in Miami and Hotlanta,
And you can smile in Green Bay if you wanna,
But are the four riderless horses beginning to trot?
Is global warming all that you've got? NOT.
There's Ebola and grief from Pretoria to Peoria.
A funny thing happened on the way to Utopia.
We have bigger problems than the SUN.

P.S. "Our leaders are like day-flies warming themselves in the autumnal sunshine with no idea that the winter is coming." – Dr. Arthur Voobus, Estonian theologian

BUT THEY DON'T HAVE GOD ON THE RUN.
