SHEPHERDS of LIFE


The twelve Apostles appointed by Christ
Were given power to cast out evil within.
He sent them forth to preach, teach and heal
As Godís shepherdís from Heaven to men.

Republicans and democrats now campaign for office
In Godís land of liberty, freedom and choice.
Deliberately shaping their future in history
By their judgment, accomplishment and voice.

Once more we must choose our shepherds of life
Driven by love, liberty and countryís call.
Propelled by duty, honor and faith
Pledging to protect and defend justice for all.

Our world has become more dangerous than ever
Due to war, hate, plunder and disease.
Take heed therefore and ponder your vote
As you pray who to vote for on your knees.

Hey there, first of all thanks for the comment . Really loved the concept in your poem! I live in Australia so it's not as close to home atm but it raises some really vital issues. Liked the way you worked in some good rhyme and rhythm too.
Keep writing!

An enjoyable piece; great subject matter, for there are many shepherds in one's life; prayer is a necessity; nice job. --Joe

Logic, when applied to people, fails miserably! --Joseph J. Breunig 3rd
