Before Fools in High Places Strayed...

 (had to think about this song as I jotted this God's tender mercy I have lived it!)

PAD challenge day 1: Write a 'foolish' poem.

At home, at school, at work they prayed
And pitied faithless frauds
Before fools in high places strayed
And worshiped lesser gods

Oh, once upon a Sunday morn
Churches were filled with praise
Of Holy, Holy before scorn
Of fools chose broader ways

A fool worships man’s lawless grants
Their gods, slack and uncouth
Deceived, hand-me-down ignorance
No longer knows the truth

But changeless God abides, His love
Lavishes human race
The fool replies ‘there is no god’
And God replies with grace

© Janet Martin

 The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." 
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; 
there is no one who does good.

Scripture has much to say about fools,
And only a fool ignores it.
This is not harsh…
it is Truth.
