ROLE MODELS WELCOME
The role models are all gone
No one left to carry on
The idea of such is back to front
The ‘ideal’ – lost – made blunt
No sharpness or cutting edge left
Only self-seeking indulgence – bereft…
Of character and wholesome example
Genuine stalwarts with good intentions –
Virtues to reach the younger ones
Instead we have lunatics with guns
Egoists hanging on ahead
Filling their coffers with filthy lucre’s bread
But what will pointing this out do?
Is there a remnant of choice-persons
Are there any to salvage decencies cause?
Is normality – permanently on pause?
Is there an inkling even so to be?
Any examples left – fortuitously?
Or will a ‘morality skid row’ drag
To the lowest level to be found?
Is there light on the horizon and hope
– Springing eternal against hope?
Can we step up to the mark
Can we care enough to embark…
On restoration of father’s hearts
to children, children’s to fathers
Getting ‘Stedfast love’ – off to a fine art?
Love for the King of Kings
as into the kingdom we freshly bring
Those who don’t know where to look
Adults having failed, morality forsook
all is not irredeemable
Hold forth the Word of Life as believable
It will not return void
It’s power producing one accord
Hearts suddenly made alive to God
Clean escaping Ichabod
No condemnation to those who believe
A life forgiven and retrieved.
Role models what are they?
Role models what will they say?
Role models lining up to show
Role models all in a row
Genuine men – and women too
Setting themselves to be true.
Role models of a different kind
Seeing clearly – not blind.
Reaching their hands out
Standing firm with no shadow of doubt
Where are the role models
Do you care to check?
Role models welcome back.
