Workin’ for the FBI

Tell me a tale, you go to jail
You give me guff, you’ll see who’s tough
You get me pissed, you’re on the list
When you are killed, I am fulfilled

I’m workin’ for the FBI
I’m a law enforcement guy

You lie to me, you won’t be free,
Don’t call me out, I’ve got big clout
You “patriots” are monkey butts
You “citizens” are firing pins

I’m workin’ for the FBI
I’m a law enforcement guy

Embarrass us, we’ll fight and fuss
That Finicum was overcome
A cowboy hero was one big zero.
Don’t mess with fate, dude, we shoot straight

I’m workin’ for the FBI
I’m a law enforcement guy

You want the law? That’s us, McGraw
We’ll find pretexts if we are vexed
We lost some texts while having sex
And we’re perplexed below our necks

I’m workin’ for the FBI
I’m a law enforcement guy

You’ll go to jail and have no bail
We’ll hide your file with you’re in trial
You’ll never budge, we own the judge
So we can say she’ll go our way

I’m workin’ for the FBI
I’m a law enforcement guy

We want your guns, don’t fight us, son
We know the route, we’ll stage a shoot
You’ll walk and run to take the guns
So we’ll have power and you will cower

Eden Sank to Grief

Eden Sank to Grief

Adam dreamed he lost a rib.
He woke up–it was no fib.
“Missing rib? Where is my bone?’
Adam asked. He felt alone.

God answered him out loud:
“You’re gentle, innocent, unbowed.
You were lonely and asleep,
You had a bone, no need to keep,
I opened up and took the rib
(Which spared the trouble of a crib).
I poured the breath of life within
And sculpted lovely skin
From that one rib, something new.
I made a wife for you
Out of your chest, out of a bone.
Your bone’s your mate; you’ll be alone
No more,” said God. “Woman for me,”
Adam said. “What curves I see!

“Helper-mate,” the Lord declared,
“Made when you were unaware.”

Adam said, approaching there:
“In Eden God has answered prayer,

Honey-sweet, a precious dove.”
The first man said, “I am in love.”

“You’re in charge,” God said to them:
“Eat, drink, play, or take a swim.
Do what you will, but do not eat
The tree that lets you know of evil
And of good; it’s at the middle,
This garden’s center: I don’t kid.”

“What if we want a smell, a sniff?”

“You’ll regret a single whiff.”

“But if I take but one bite . . . “

“You’ll find out it isn’t right.
Take one bite and you will die,
No matter what you say or try.”

Eve walked out to look around
And she saw Snake on the ground.
“Wouldn’t you like to be wise?”
She heard from Snake, the King of Lies.

“How?” asked Eve, who was naive.

“I”ll show you, if you believe.
There is a tree, near where you sat.”

“But God said no, don’t eat from that,
For I will die if I eat.
God is good and I won’t cheat.”

“Don’t give me guff,” Snake replied.
“Others ate, and none have died.”

“Shiny red, it does look fine.
I wish that fruit were all mine.”

“You must think and use your heart.
God knows fruit will make you smart.
You’ll need guts to take my dare.”

“A bite can’t hurt,” Eve said, impaired.

She took a bite. Snake disappeared.
Adam came and shed big tears.

“This fruit is good,” Eve told her mate,
But he was worried for her fate.

“God is good. He said, ‘Don’t eat!’”

“But take one bite. This fruit is sweet.”

Adam loved, and he was torn.
His eyes were sad, his look forlorn.
“Death will come,” he said to her.

“But how can you be so sure?
Snake told me I’d be wise– ”

“That was Satan in disguise!”

“Don’t you love me? I am your mate.”
And Adam saw and took and ate.

“We’re naked!” he remarked.
“We have to hide inside this park.”

God walked amid Eden’s trees:
Cool afternoon with a light breeze,

And he asked Adam, “Where are you?”

“We’re scared. We’re in shade, too,”
Adam said, “We need some clothes.
We were ashamed, and this we chose,”

“Ashamed? You? You must tell why.
You live with me in Paradise.”

“Our eyes were opened when we ate:
Evil, good, we know man’s fate.”

“No, you don’t,” the Lord replied.
I said, ‘Don’t eat or you will die.’”

“But now at last we’re wise.”

“The Devil tricked you in disguise.”

“Snake told me I should eat.
He told me to, and it was sweet.”

“She asked me to. She is my mate,”
Adam said, “so I ate.”

“You broke my rules!” the Lord God roared.
“You’ll walk in Eden nevermore.
On his belly Snake will crawl,
Women giving birth will bawl,
The pain so great they’ll want to die.
Snake, you are the King of Lies.
For the evil you have sprung,
Her children will despise your young,
And all your days you will eat dust–
Never will you regain my trust.
The woman’s child will crush your head;
You’ll bruise his heel when he has bled.
From red dust you were formed,
Adam, from red dust you were born,
And from red dust you’ll earn your bread
In painful work until you’re dead.”

Cherubim with flaming sword
Guard Eden’s east for the Lord.

With heads bent down, the banished pair,
Lonely, weeping, depart with cares.

 Conformity

 

260.

Israel, as you go into the land and attack the nations that are there, the LORD will get rid of them, and you can have their land.

But that’s when you must be especially careful not to ask, “How did those nations worship their gods? Shouldn’t we worship the LORD in the same way?”

–Deuteronomy 12:29-30

261.

Dear friends, God is good. So I beg you to offer your bodies to him as a living sacrifice, pure and pleasing. That’s the most sensible way to serve God. Don’t be like the people of this world, but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to him.

–Romans 12:1-2
