Who will speak for the children?

"Call to Arms"

...War on terror continues,
ragin' on foreign soils, while
we're losin' the battle right
here, in our backyard,
here at home.
Little babies, i n n o c e n t s,
slaughter'd in halls and classrooms
(schools, the killin' fields), learnin'
about violence,
here at home.
The doors to decency have
slamm'd shut with a final BANG!,
pervert'd closets open'd
wider and w  i   d    e     r,
here at home.
Church!  No longer a Heaven,
God and prayer remov'd from the
pulpit, murderin' demons
took the Spirit's place,
here at home.
Pay the babysitter, the
one with fifty-two inch eyes,
the one poisonin' the minds
of our little ones,
here at home.
...And meanwhile, promises are
bein' made to be broken,
tears fallin' on deafen'd ears,
Here at home.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman. (10/3)

Ah, Karla, a very good write! I say the world has gone insane! IMO, the answer starts with God, and trickles down to self-accountability and responsibility. Timely and excellent write.

Peace. Joyce

It all seems so helpless. It has to start at home. These kids are not getting the disipline or closeness children need to grow into a feeling human being. We have to all get involved. Great piece Karla, keep it flowing.

I hear the cry that torments us all. The spirit of anti-Christ is among the media, television, in schools, in governments...everywhere. None but Jesus can put a halt to this madness, Karla. We must remain steadfast in our prayers in spite of those who foolishly think there is no God. You have written a powerful poem, my friend!

God Bless
Lots of love

unfortunately, many more ... in any extensive shift of civilzation madness will certainly abound ... it will take time and the strength for mankind's spirit to evolve into a developed being that has no desire to kill and destroy ...

powerful voice in this poem, Karla ...

Keep your pens coming. When enough speak out the chances of changing the laws are better.

Karla, a potent write of great magnitude!

When our Nation traded The Living God, for the false god, Political Correctness, our fate was sealed. satan is having a hey-day, for we have entered the age of Lawlessness described in the Bible....the Final Victory is already ours, but until Christ returns for what is His, the reviews of Peter and Eileen are absolutley true.

What a heart-sickness, to see these horrors taking place, after our nation turned its back on God. We must ALL do our part! Thank you for doing yours, and bringing this to the fore. Now, I'll do mine..

IIChronicles 7:14

As usual Karla you have hit the nail squarely on the head."HOW MANY HAVE TO DIE HEAR(here) AT HOME?" Pun intended. We march to the same drummer often I think we march alone but I know better. Peace, love, blessings and gratitude for caring and sharing, and Cynth'ya for inspiring this poignant write. <Mikii>

I agree with Eileen below completely..

We are not losing the battle, we are winning it,... we must all remember that we are up against an implacable and satanic foe, both home and away..

In God We Trust..

Reviewed by E T Waldron 10/4/2006
An excellent poem and spot on in most of its content. However, one thing we have to remember is that Government doesn't and shouldn't raise our children. That's up to parents. Also, the communities each one where people who do these crimes live, are responsible to a degree in how they are run. The local district leaders and politicians can be held accountable for their part. We should be more precise in where we cast blame, so things can be fixed. Blaming any one president or national government, is just a waste of time in this kind of incident. What that man did who killed the Amish is first of all his own fault. After that, you can look at how he was raised, then other types of conditions. We need to get serious about how we can improve this world and one president whomever he may be, is not going to do it on his own. It's easy to salve our conscience by blaming a leader we don't like, but that doesn't solve anything.

Strong and emotinal write that covers all that is wrong in this world today. Well said my friend.

The trouble is that the politically correct politicians have no answer for they have put God to one side. Moral values are dropping everywhere. Great eye-opener. Victor

The very sad part is there is no way to predict where or when the "home-grown" violence will next occur. Heartbreaking. Your poem is timely and so accurate, Karla
