+ 27.225 MHz 232: LXXVI; Poem After Romans 12:19

The Lord said, Vengeance is mine.

The Lord has promised, I will repay.

Therefore, no poem of mine---

not even a single line---

should attempt to add to the penalty

of the foe's obstinate perfidy.

The Scripture says, Give place to wrath.

The brethren's supernatural accuser

has appointed a chief deputy

who is an inveterate abuser

of words, though lacking skill and artistry.

He follows his supervisor's path:

not to me is the calling

to add to his penalty,

which will catch up to him without stalling.
But for his condemnation, none are forbidden to pray.



Author's Notes/Comments: 

The poem also alludes to Revelation 12:10.

Difficult to let it slide

Difficult to let it slide sometimes, isn't it. But yeah, people usually get what's coming to them. Peace...

Thank you for those kind

Thank you for those kind words.  I admit to being a very flawed Christian, and often I do not follow the obvious right path.  But, in a kind of paradox, the more I am flawed, the more I feel my need for a Saviour.  This is Grace, and I dare not question it.  Thanks for visiting the poem.
