"It is equally as important to know useless things as those deemed useful. . .for the ability to skip learning the futile, to show to others how, is as insightful and beneficial as knowledge is to be gained."
There but for the grace of God go I. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There but for the grace of God go I. Having reached the age of six n seventy Eagles of the sea have taught me to fly Rich rewards await if you reach a land o plenty Expectations under wraps but you have to try
By loving and giving the passport to nobility Unless you keep a faith you’ll never know why There but for the grace of God go I
Fortune favours t’ brave my Daddy w’ so wise. On those winter nights he reads to my delight Rubicon of literary giants was my prize.
The works o’ Rudyard Kipling kept a boy alive Hidden hero’s mentoring a child with a desire Every Sunday church attend all were s’advised
Granted there but for the grace of God go I Running clear of all the gangs Im traumatised Atheists n sinners ridiculed looking in my eyes Call yourself a Christian ?Well we are amazed Even with such provocative faith held for years
On life threatening occasions it never wavered Faith holds the key as friends fail to survive
Gladly ,there but for the grace of God go I Oh grant me that grace to be of your PA Diligence and devotion t’ serve you all my days
God channeled me my words for love of man Only wish to perpetuate the joy of poetry.
In an age.When fake news is everywhere . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Written by Philip. November 10th 2018.
My world today is upside down When truth is lies and cheating; When the country is run by a clown Who wants to be beyond defeating. When robbing the poor is fun For those who don’t need money. When taking sick people’s insurance To the wealthy is something funny.
The world is thinking with it’s **** If looking back to Nazis is correct. We have the burden to protest this, We have a society we must protect. Some are badly uneducated now Because we have lowered the bar On what we teach our children today. Yes, we have sunk down that far.
As a people, we don’t seem to care About who is making our laws now. The law is full of massive restrictions But most of us have no idea just how. How did they get there, these rules That support the rich and corporations? When did we become this leviathan Of criminals running our fine nation?
So, what can we do, short of revolution? Do we all march in the streets and strike? Do we stop buying cars and houses And go to work every day on a bike? Do we boycott spending money at all Until the crooks are cleared away? And how do we tell good from bad In the way things are slanted today?
We all must speak and write and demand Of the current representatives elected To look to the precedents we have had Upon which our great country was erected. We founded this country on equality And promised freedom for us all. We have the burden to see to it That our government answers that call.
