Closing In

Closing In

You look around and no one’s there
At least you do not see a soul
You wake at night and you are scared
Your life of crime–it takes its toll

He cut off your departure routes
Your one-time friends are compromised
They said you have concealed the loot
You’ll turn it in, if you are wise

His breath burns hot upon your neck
And you’ve become a nervous wreck
He’s closing in, closing in on you
Closing in on you
Closing in
Close

You speak the same defiant words
As if he’ll let you keep the dough
You make a call, you’re overhead
And you are tracked each place you go

You suffer nightmares at high noon
Your dreams have turned to grimy rags
You pray to sun and stars and moon
As friends depart and spirits sag

His breath burns hot upon your neck
And you’ve become a nervous wreck
He’s closing in, closing in on you
Closing in on you
Closing in
Close

No one to trust, the nights are long
As little gray men dog your days
You used to kill and joke along
You stumble now in a drunken daze

Your hardened heart will kill you yet
If you aren’t chained in prison first
Las Vegas bookies place their bets
The bettors say your life is cursed.

His breath burns hot upon your neck
And you’ve become a nervous wreck
He’s closing in, closing in on you
Closing in on you
Closing in
Close

You plan and scheme, connive, conspire
You’re on the run, pretend you’re cool
You seek a way to quench desire
It’s hard to learn that you’re the fool

Damp afternoons, you question why
You never hit the winning streak
You hate to live, you’re scared to die
And to confront the Judgment Seat

His breath burns hot upon your neck
And you’ve become a nervous wreck
He’s closing in, closing in on you
Closing in on you
Closing in
Close

California on verge of becoming our first ‘third-world’ state as disease, trash, homelessness plague biggest cities

TownHall’s Matt Vespa adds: “Dr. Drew Pinsky said this month that there has been a total and complete breakdown of services in the city that has placed the population at risk of infection and other health-related issues. The mayor’s office has sought to shift blame away from the homeless, citing the illegal dumping of trash, which only adds to the narrative that deep blue California and LA are just Democratic cesspools.”

“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now,” Pinsky told Fox News. “Third world countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this. No city on Earth tolerates this. The entire population is at risk.”

Betrayers

Betrayers

Clink! Thirty silver pieces in his palm,
Judas betrayed Him with a kiss at night
Regretted it, tossed back the coins–no balm–
Went forth confused, committed suicide.

Passed over for promotion, snubbed and bruised,
Or so this brilliant general complained,
So he betrayed America for loot,
And the Boot Monument–it bears no name.

Crooked from the beginning, uranium
Was sold to Russia and her spouse was paid
More than the market rate to speak, and from
Russia came millions to the Foundation.

Some will betray their country; some, a friend:
Betrayers never come to a good end.
