I JUST ONE OF THE HERD

As I led through that jungle in the islands back then,

It was every bit real!  There was no pretense!

Disturbing to think!  Sure, all thoughts were disturbed!

When machine-gun fire took one of my herd!

.

.

Emptiness, easy to say at ninety-three,

All has been said.  So what is left for me?

Sure, repetition of the most important,

High on the scale of, and not my, deportment.

,

,

What is left to say?  Has not all been said?

Why do I not just remain near my bed?

Reiterate  some already been written.

A thousand times, repetition smitten.

.

.

Come with me to a rock-pile where long ago.

Could be there is something there we should know

Representing every person who ever lived.

Quintillion and then some.  Sifted through that sieve.

.

.

Sitting on that rock-pile, Boys Club and I

Sure snakes hiding there.  It is just do or die!

Or bears near by, way out in the sticks

Idiotic course!  Consider this fix.

.

.

I was trusted not just a chaperon,

Sure, like a king on a golden throne!

Dictating policy repetitious through years

Thinking of Jesus shedding those tears.

.

.

Over that city, “Oh Jerusalem,

But you not!  No, you would not come!”

Sure much intensity!  Reiterating past!

As Jesus wept and the dye was cast!

.

.

Did I weep?  Sure, I am but a man.

Marking time, of course, doing what I can.

Did I pray for those kids?  Yes, remember,

Did Santa Claus worry, nearing December?

.

.

Did I accomplish what I intended?

Or just a pretense.  Oh, God help if pretended!

Was my intent clear caring for them?

Those boys (men) still living?  Not to condemn!

.

.

“Vanity of vanities,” is it all I can see?

Or does it all count for eternity?

Is my record clear sure I have outlived all!

I will answer to God!  He remembers the call!

.

.

What will it matter?  Sure  everything!

Did I not care for them like some King?

What will my answer be?  Will my tears count?

Reward or punish?  I will cling to the Fount!

.

.

Jesus shares and He cares!

.

.

Lowly Sam, Just one of the herd!

God bless!  02.16.12
