TERMS ARE TENUOUS

Unless the bond is thick as thieves,

Despite the busyness of bees,

Unless once driven to your knees,

The terms were tenuous!

.

.

If grace was easy to accept,

Or just another loose concept,

Not causing any great effect,

The terms were tenuous!

.

.

If tears were never once involved,

Or some old problem left unsolved,

With no real basic terms resolved,

The terms were tenuous!

.

.

Too easy to adjust to changes,

No major acts to re-arrange,

No real great difference, nothing strange,

Your terms were tenuous!

.

.

“This is so easy!  Do not you know!

“This grace thing really hot to go!

“Forgiveness easy,” is that so?

The terms too tenuous!

.

.

“Cannot I do as I always did?

“Presumptions sinning as I bid?

“For strange displays Pandora’s lid?”

Oh, God, forbid!

.

.

Not easy, not over hard!

Not tenuous so be on guard!

Where love constrains there is nothing barred. (*)

The multitude of sins…” (**)

.

.

(*) “Love of God constrains and controls us.”

(**) “Love (agape) covers a multitude of sins.”
