Be watchful! Be alert! … (Mk 13:33).

While I watched—

Liberal teachers took over public schools,
Then began to subvert our kids.
Liberal professors took over universities,
Then began to brainwash our youth.
Liberal formators took over seminaries,
Then began to foment dissent.
Liberal pastors took over churches.
Then began to preach heresy.
Liberal judges took over the courts,
Then began to outlaw righteousness.
Liberal publishers took over mass media,
Then began to produce propaganda.
Liberal producers took over Hollywood,
Then began to champion virtue signaling.
Liberal politicians took over government,
Then began to institute chicanery.
Liberal businessmen took over companies
Then began to bankroll anti-Christs.

While I just watched—

Sex Education became Sex Promotion;
Feminism became misandry.
Marriage became free-for-all;
Polygamy became no-fault divorce.
Homosexuality became paraded pride;
Mothering babies became murdering babies.
Disunity became diversity;
Patriotism became xenophobia.
Intellectual became stupidity;
Idealism became wokeness.
Censuring became racism;
Righting became bigotry.
Absolute Truth became relative;
Political Correctness became objective.
I-Think became GroupThink;
I-Tech became I-Thoughtalitarian.
Conformity became cultured;
Deviation became cancelled.

I watched, I just watched—
I did not raise my arms;
I did not raise my voice;
I did not sound the alarm;

Now, resistance is too late;
I can only gasp while I am gagged.
I raise my arms, but to be bound;
I spread my legs, but to be chained.
I drag my feet as I am led
Away from home, and away from family;
To be sold, and to be enslaved.

LORD, I tremble to think of the Last Judgment, when you would condemn me, ‘I was lashed, and you just watched.’ VSS
