Jeremiah

When children receive death as their inheritance
From parents who went gentle into that dark night
When the Mercedes Benz goes 40
Past the man holding the cardboard sign
When the people on Sunday stream out
Of brick buildings and backstab and lie
When the universities teach that we are
But accidents and nothingness
When the pop culture blue screen
Tells us we just have to look better

I'm only more aware of my own hardened heart
And cry again, "Come, Lord Jesus."
