Smoke Rises

Smoke rises

Smoke rises

out of control burn

truth and lies

no one seems to learn

 

Enterprises

the wise man discerns

what one despises

it’s how you earn.

 

Walking on Main Street

talking to the poor

walking on Colfax

that’s what prayer is for

let’s talk- talk to God.

 

Blinders off- all around

speaking truth

this is Holy ground

smokers cough

hear the sound

Amazing Grace

of the lost and drowned.

 

Walking on Main Street

talking to the poor

walking on Colfax

that’s what prayer is for

let’s talk- talk to God.

 

Well it’s prayer before pride

praise before fall

 

There’s someone on the outside

who is taking the call

and the predators on Colfax

are lurking right behind

they are jumping the border

they are playing with her mind

it’s a new world order

and they ignore the Red Stop sign

 

Smoke rises

out of control burn

truth versus lies

will we ever learn?

 

And the finale has to open

before the family ties

of grave concern

There was concern about the fire and the missionaries I was leading
