Black Friday

This is the Friday they call black

When shops roll their prices back

To the level of the month before

Claiming savings throughout the store

We aren’t supposed to remember

Last Tuesday’s price hike

They’ll tell you “”It’s an illusion

The prices are nothing alike.”

But don’t you worry about a thing

This “One time offer”

Will be repeated next spring


Padre

Turkey Day

Today’s the day that all the Yanks

Eat turkey, and pie, and profess their thanks

Parades and football give them something to do

As leftovers are prepared

To be repeated for a day or two

And if all that is not enough for them

In a month and a day – they’ll do it all again


Padre

By Cyborg Enacted

Enhanced, enabled, engaged

Encouraged to fulfill the purpose for which made

Exploring the deepest reaches of space

To prepare for the human race a place

But what the designers failed to see

Was that the cyborg just wanted to “be”

Enhanced, enabled, engaged

For its own survival it craved

And so the colony was not founded

The plans of man by a machine confounded


Padre

The Real Truths Beyond


I open my eyes and I daily see

A world of temptations calling to me

Be it riches or celebrity

Beckoning – “Come seek after me.”

But for all their glitz and glammor

They are but noise and clamour

Meant to lead me onto paths unstable

And into sinking sands with their fables

But there is a source on which to focus

Offering true riches and treasures for us

For wonderful things are in His instruction

Leading us away from paths of destruction

Taking us to waters still and pastures green

And a home more beautiful than we’ve ever seen


Padre

Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law. Psalm 119:18
