Friends and Family

Thank Goodness, I am where I am
Because I'm married to a stubborn man,
Who denies he's sick until the day
We all drop to our knees and pray.

How can a brilliant scientist be so dumb,
When his body makes his brain finally succumb,
That he would drive himself to the hospital
When his life is so, caring people, full?

It goes to show that my friend is right;
In speaking of stupidity 'til we see the light.
Refusing to depend on others can sometimes be
A way to creating greater tragedy.

This seems to be why we all need friends
On whom we can always depend.
They will come to our aid when we need it,
And when we're stupid, they will pitch a fit.

I've gone quite crazy in the attempt
To show him that others are grateful he was sent.
Until others are willing to confront his lies,
He will hide behind his non-vulnerable disguise.

So pitch those fits, our loyal friends,
To my stoic friend/husband.
He needs other friends and family
That he acknowledges besides me.

Abortion and Another Abomination

How can those who pretend to be pro-life
Accept war as a way of ending strife?
From the beginning of human's history,
An eye-for-an-eye is the way it should be.

Those who follow the new way
Know that what this Bible had to say
Had no killing for those who disagree
With the beliefs of you and me.

We know that not all embrace The Spirit
By which our human souls are lit.
Why do we believe that those who do not
Can give birth to what The Spirit has begot?

We are foolish to believe that the seeds of war
Will produce the peace that we pray for.
Only peaceful protest will provide lasting results
Which, toward eternal peace, our society catapults.

I believe it is more wrong to kill those
Who are, toward loving their children, disposed
Than it is to kill the seeds of women and men
Who are not capable of loving their own children.
