6-25-14 Dirge #14: Those Without Love for What is Good


“If it bleeds then it leads, that’s the name of the game!” yelled the editor to the new hire;

There is no room on the TV for nice, it is not even worth to acquire.

Beware as you should, without love for what’s good!

You corrupt and condemn, to you evil’s a gem.

One day you’d want to pray if you could!

“Look at that girl, is she better than us?” asked the young woman to her best friend;

She just can’t stand that the girl is upright, she keeps thinking of words to offend.

Beware, heartless witch, your black spirit’s not rich!

You’d rake over the coals all the innocent souls.

In Hell’s realm you will find your own niche!

“There’s no hope so give up, the world’s doomed to explode,” said the man with a terrible scowl;

No matter the subject he turns it around and proclaims all that’s filthy and foul.

Go away with your cloud, your kind here’s not allowed!

Your negative vibe is depressing the tribe;

There’s no love in your doom-laden shroud!

Joy is the answer to clean out the heart, and it comes from surrender to God.

Admit you’re a sinner and that Christ is your Lord, and let love leave you breathless and awed.

Say goodbye to your hate or it might be too late.

Embrace all that is good and you’ll be understood!


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)
