7-1-14 Dirge #16: The Reckless


“I know it’s risky, but man it looks fun!” said the young man to all his friends;

He climbed to the top of the tower and danced, ’til he slipped and fell down to his end.

Beware, careless lad, you have died for a fad!

You wasted your life, caused your family great strife,

And destroyed all the futures you had!

“Give me that spice, I’ll just hit it twice,” drawled the woman at the steering wheel,

She then got so high she forgot where she was, and they crashed and died buried in steel.

Beware, reckless fool, headstrong like a mule!

You sure did get higher, now your feet’s in the fire;

What you did was thoughtless and cruel!

“How dare they insult me; let’s go forth to war!” cried the King to the room full of men;

Impulsive and rash, so now thousands were killed; leaders do it again and again.

Go away, you are rash, now two countries are ash!

You have got Hell to pay, and there you will stay

With the others whose teeth grind and gnash!

Head to the cross before it’s too late, lay your burdens at Christ’s perfect feet.

If you seek adventure there’s no better venture than sharing the gospel complete.

There is so much to do for your Saviour it’s true.

Please be careful and wise, let the Spirit advise!


1 “But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days.

2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud,

blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,

3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self control,

brutal, without love for what is good,

4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures

rather than lovers of God,

5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power.

Avoid these people!”


2 Timothy 3:1-5 (HCS)
