dear viewer newSociety is crying out, shriveling in her knees
Morality and her counterfeits issuing their decrees
“Release!” morality beckons
“All the people shackled by deception”
Unfortunately the laws of the districts
Are no longer worthy of being called “this strict!”
The neighbourhood growing unneighbourly by the minute
And our friendly neighbourhood Spiderman
Has only a handful of counterparts
As heroism wanes daily
Permitting villains to wreak their demeaning acts gaily
Who would take a stand for godliness?
A lot of the credit for this goes to the media,
Especially my childhood pal, TV
We grew up together in the same house
Two peas in a pod, two nostrils in a nose,
Hardly did I leave his side
His attractive colours and moving pictures had me on a leash
No doubt, I experienced an information overdose
Thanks to my best buddy and teacher – TV
Little did I know it was an attempt of betrayal
The things he showed me as I flipped through the pages of his mind
Were enough to enroll my imagination for an endless marathon
He boldly held me hostage
With his hostility confining my disposition
And my opposition yielding no change of position
My proposition procuring no chance for deliberation
And so my insubordination only piqued my conformation
What more could I do?
TV taught me his language and shaped my actions
Till the point my other friends would ask in shock
“when did you start doing that?”
But when I realized God’s word says that I cannot serve two masters,
My dilemma seemed to vanish
I had to make the choice to choose a God who first chose me
So that I would not choose a choice of serving the wrong choice
long enough before I realized that my wrong choice
would lead to a series of choices that would confiscate my rights
to making the right choices or more essentially, The Right choice (God)
Please don’t misunderstand my stance
TV sure had some good sides
But he was doing more harm than good
The lustful thoughts he inspired fought violently to claim kingship,
Not merely a GAME OF THRONES
But the resurgence of WORLD WAR Z
‘cause the zombies of my past that I thought were dead
Came back to life, much fiercer this time
And concurrently, a battle between fiction and reality
Apparently TV was gaining the upper hand
With his appealing, yet sly 50 SHADES OF GRAY he showed on every side,
But God showed me His 50 shades of grace,
Equipping me on every side to actually finish the race
See, I didn’t need AMERICAN IDOL to show me
that TV was becoming a god,
It was obvious!
TV was at the climax of my excitement,
The highlight of my day, the bulk of my time
The largest piece of my pie, my craving at dawn
While I gave God just a pixel of my life’s image
It’s no surprise that convicted criminals give him a lot of credit
TV, that is.
The rapists attest to his influence,
The drug dealers snort up crystals of his lies
The robbers and muggers have had their integrity stolen by him
He’s changed cute, innocent little girls
Who knew the importance of honesty
Into PRETTY LITTLE LIARS who justify white lies
I guess all I’m saying is that I don’t want to be deceived anymore
And be ensnared in a HOUSE OF LIES
But glory be to God for His words are true
And lies cannot inhabit His truth’s habitation
Lord I pray for more time, more grace
More strength and more love for Your glorious Word
I don’t need to buy Bull™ (Red Bull™) to read my Bible
I rely on Your strength!
O How I long to find solace in Your eternal Word
Even when I’m tempted to find it elsewhere
Lord I pray that Your Word would govern my every action and thought
So that when the AMAZING RACE is finished
All thanks to Your AMAZING GRACE,
I’ll be conformed to Your image
And look just like you; white as snow
SNOW WHITE? Nah, not quite
I want to flee the world’s pleasures,
And discover Your Word’s beautiful treasure
So that I with many of Yours
Would hand-in-hand stand for godliness.
