Uncleared Debt

I have to ask and wonder
About my latest blunder
My soul's been rent asunder
Amidst the most just thunder
As it rightly should
For my life has not been good
Doing all the sins I could
Wearing darkness like a hood
But this! It takes the cake
Though He died for my sake
With mercy deeper than a lake
My heart denied it as a fake
Thus unable to accept
I could not clear my debt

God bless,

The Taps of Iron

The taps of iron onto stone
In regular rhythm, then faster beat
Louder and closer they do come
The riders on their beasts

'I bear a message' is declared
By the lead knight, in armor gleaming
'Freedom for all who repent!
The Son of God, goes on redeeming!'

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Certainly I may, but if I had a little time
I could help my poor family, bury my folks
Sell my business for pretty penny while it's prime
And after checking with my wife, certainly I may
Certainly I may follow

God bless,

And Down

And down, and down, and down the song
Depths beyond the ephemeral eddies
Reaching a place both soft and strong
Buffing the seed the listener readies
And presents, presents the fruit of toils
The blossoms watered by sweat and salt
And returning these, joy uncoils
Swiftly joining the maoldy without fault

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Walk Haiku

Ferocious breath
Flaking fairy tears are shorn
Another walk

God bless,

A Pot

A pot of smoking onions
With some water on the top
Poured through meshed carrots
The finest of the crop
Garrot skinned potatoes
Squeeze peppers til they're blue
De-ear the listening corn
Before they have a clue
Add in a sprig of garlic
Well actually add in ten
This cubic inch veggie stew
Must fill ten dozen men

God bless,
Joshua Fahey
