HE UNDERSTANDS AND FORGIVES

Did Jesus have enemies?

Oh, yes!  They crucified Him!

Then there is David, did he escape

Those Psalms he wrote are filled…

.

Jesus suffered with no reprisal!

Matter-of-fact on that cross

“Father forgive them!  They know not…

That for this they suffer loss!”

.

.

Indeed David did return

His warring spirit proclaimed

Return of evil enemies had done

Retribution claimed!

.

.

So impossible to follow the

Example Jesus had set!

David had real enemies, so

Must he then forget–

.

.

Raids by the savages,

That unbelieving horde?

What about our country then

With David in accord?

.

.

How about our enemies,

This country called to battle?

Can one love and still destroy?

Testimony a mere rattle!

.

.

If conscientious the objection,

Did not our country leave

Consideration to the individual?

Those who cannot believe–

.

.

That man killing man can conceivably be

The Christian thing to do

And then conscientiously object!

To your conscience be true!

.

.

Both sides consideration deserve!

My side, just no hate involved!

But for love of my country!

Problem not quite solved!

.

.

Just halfheartedly in the combat zone

No hate at all for enemy!

Then as Chaplin’s fruition in fact

In joyous service free!

.

.

Cpl. S.H.C. that’s me!
