From the Filthy
To the Clean,
All the hygiene
Every one we
Haven’t seen:
Yet to be,
Or never been
God still loves them
Sight unseen
How ‘bout Hitler
He was wrong
So was Stalin
This list is long
Everyone who
Made mistakes
Judas, Cain and
Eden’s Snake
Not a one
Will God Forsake
Take a look
Who Else She’ll Take
Idi Amin, Gingis Kahn,
Iatola, Farrakhan,
Jeffrey Dhammer,
All Alkeida,
And Sadam,
Plus Osama
And George Bush
Even when the
Button’ pushed
Michael Jackson
And James Jones
Charles Manson
All have homes
So many mansions
Yet to fill
Think of all the
Sunni killed
Weekend Warriors
Pedophile priests
And OJ
Hannibal Lechter
Gruesome men
All get in
Through Inquisitions
To Salem Trials
Will end in smiles
For those who won
And those who lost
God will carry
The total cost
And when we choose
To begin again
God will blow us out
And breathe us
C 2006 David Brunoehler
Are some blessed souls
Loved more than others?
Newborns and Mothers?
Didn’t Jesus
Garner favor
For giving Grace
The Christians savor
Sure, God knew
He was a Jew
So what do righteous
People do?
Doesn’t God prefer the meek?
Pure at heart?
Shepherds’ Keep?
Promised Land
For Peacemakers,
Like the Givers
More than Takers?
How devout does
One need be?
If it’s true
Is God’s love free?
Aren’t there those
Who pass a test?
Just to know
Who God loves best?
Ask a Buddhist
Monk or Nun
Or a Mayan
‘Bout the Sun
What’s a Hindu
Gonna to do
When Swords of Islam
Run him through?
Muslim, Mormon
LRH and New Age Jocks
How confusing it must be
If God loves them
And still claims me!
After all the preachers say
If I were God, I’d run away
I’ve heard some tell
Of Better Ways
Evolved Beings
Creating days
On the other hand
I’ve heard it said
That they’re in Hell
Their God is dead
So what’s a being got to do
To know if God
Is even true?
Some say nothing
Let it be
Some insist
Nothing is free
Many folk
Fall Back on Faith
In hopes that their
Beliefs are safe
So many good men
Striving hard
Driving Devils
From their yard
All I know
From all I’ve seen
Is God is All
That’s ever been
With that in mind
I go to bed
And pray the Angels
Rest my head
And as I sleep
My soul will keep
Let God be One
And all with me
Let there be nothing
God could need
And let that be
The same for me
Loving All
For loving me
Forever One
Forever free C 1 January 2007 David Brunoehler
