Poetry Sunday ~ A Hazy New Year

A New Year
As all the people gather round
swigging drinks, guzzling them down
They hold the festive new year show
to move the calender to a new low.

They think it’s fine to wander from Him
for just this day to revel in sin.
As He sits right on their shoulder
they blink Him away, as blood gets colder.

They’ll praise His name the very next day
as the smell of beer lingers this way.
As all the folks try to look upright
The Lord Himself has bowed out of sight.

Justify why their breath has been poisoned
the wine with which their lips were moistened
Carry me from this hidden society
into a world of livid sobriety.

I sing a song of praise to You
as we embrace on Heavens hue.
Glowing Light shines forth for me
A New Years delight, for all to see!

Happy New Year
may it be full of blessings for you!

Judges: 13:4 Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:
Deut. 32:33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.
