THE DAY WILL COME

Tis only the righteous the good and the poor,
Who think they are sinners that God might deplore,
But believe me sweet people serving in fear,
To the Spirit within you, you are precious and dear.
There are tyrants above you, who control the law,
With the power to change you into a soldier of war.
There are Presidents and preachers, ministers and Popes,
Dictators and criminals with ambitious hopes,
There are Banks and Corporations selling guns to a foe,
Who care more about money than about life you know.
But in the end they all die they all wither away,
For in the end they are nothing with nothing to say,
President! Dictator! Terrorist! Or King –
Awaiting the bells of the Devil to ring.
