Look Up! The Lord Is Watching Me and You!

 
Blood now trickles through the streets
Of the once peaceful USA!
Louisiana, Minnesota, Texas...
And more could well be on the way!
 
Hatred and violence, it now seems,
 Rule in each and every city!
The consciences of men are seared...
We're like a nation without pity!
 
The black folks blame the white folks
And the white folks blame the blacks!
And sometimes blame is shifted
Without knowing all the facts!
 
The black folks carry signs that say
That it is black lives that matter.
But haven't ALL lives earned the right
To be on that same serving platter?
 
Why serve favor to one ethic group
And leave out all the others?
 Beneath each skin are God created
Souls meant to live like brothers.
 
Why must blacks be so offended
When confronted with the ALL?
Why call it racist when it's not?
Why build yet another wall?
 
Now, all blacks don't think this way.
Some are Christian through and through.
They do love as the Lord commands
And do as Christ would have them do.
 
But some are willing to let lawlessness
Tear down the USA!
To scorn the ones who wear a badge!
To make each decent lawman pay
 
For a few who may be careless
Or even never meant to serve...
But being shot while they're protecting
Isn't what good cops deserve.
 
They do so much for so little pay...
Their lives are always way up front.
And decent folks should have no fear
It's the shady ones they hunt.
 
Remember black folks wear that badge
The same as many whites
Yet some will call them "Uncle Tom"
And will instigate some fights.
 
 Why reverse what Dr. King attained
By rebellion and disrespect?
Aww, lets  grow up and stop acting like
All but us are incorrect.
 
Can't we all be just Americans?
Admit we're flawed but try to do
The right thing by each other?
Look up! The Lord is watching me and you!

~~Dedicated to Terry~~
(Always A Warrior)
 

Romans 13:1-5
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities,
for there is no authority except that which God
has established. The authorities that exist have
been established by God. Consequently, whoever
rebels against the authority is rebelling against what
God has instituted, and those who do so will
bring judgment on themselves.
For rulers hold
no terror for those who do right, but for those
who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear
of the one in authority? Then do what is right
and you will be commended.
For the one in
authority is God’s servant for your good. But if
you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear
the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants,
agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities,
not only because of possible punishment but also
as a matter of conscience.
