CACOPHONY – A harsh discordant mixture of sounds.
Another mid-term election is already in progress. It began many months ago and has ramped into a frenzy of accusations, name calling, hatred, anger and just plain annoying noise. Like the constant dripping of a leaky faucet, we’ve been inundated with some of the meanest words I’ve ever heard. This thing called “voting” seems to be our only remaining right as citizens of the United States. We should be eager to cast our ballot, because of that. Our voice is heard on Election Day, but is it?
The noise of every day bantering between supposedly upright candidates,
Is like a deafening pounding in the ears,
There is no respite and won’t be until it’s over,
Or will it?
The only thing we know for sure is,
I cannot stand in judgment,
EVERYONE ON THIS PLANET IS GUILTY,
Of being a sinner.
We are not qualified to judge,
I hear the prattle, the babble, the puffing up of self,
I don’t hear sensibility, only ugly accusations and dirty laundry,
I see a rerun of the last election,
Overly excessive spending for negative advertising,
Money that could pay off part of the national debt.
Yet even in all this turmoil there is hope,
There is refreshment in the peace of God’s redemption,
He has promised to heal the land of those who put their faith in Him,
Only He can judge.
Only He can save.
Only He can win.
Soon it will be over.
The rhetoric will die out.
We will grumble and complain, or we’ll rejoice that our candidate won.
We will endure more years of who knows what.
We will get through this, because in the end God wins.
