theillalogicalspoon – Come Thou Warrior in Soul Thou Poet in Deed for at 12​:​17 We Shall Believe

Smash the town clock our schedules are more precise than the second
Forsake the sidewalk for a highway more direct than already
Calculated a stride of becoming but math did not get it
With movements so strict and efficient that poetry was jealous
At last we had the last laugh on city hall (high five!) our play is effective.

What time is it Lord, what time is it Lord?
You’ve made everything beautiful in its time, but what does it mean to be alive
And what is this place in which I find that I am the wicked I seek for a sign?

Now where the wind blows I go, don’t know where that is, you can hear the sound of it but it escapes all your predict
I was running and I don’t know why I looked into the sky the moon was up in the daytime, the sun was rising, in-between was a tree beside me. Look at it: It’s fall out, it smells good, there’s a cold breeze (burr)
Burn a twenty there is plenty more where that came from, well not money but something
A car passed by and I said hi [they ask] “you need a ride” [I respond] “why not.” [they ask] “where are you doing” [I respond] “absolutely.” [someone asks] “anywhere?”
[later on in the day I say to them] “let me out of the car now” [then to anyone] “come on, that blinking yellow light would make a good dance floor, I’m serious It’s time to get serious.”

What time is it Lord, what time is it Lord?
I asked around we had nothing to say Now I’m on my face Lord teach me to pray.
heaven and earth they will pass away But your words shall not pass away.

I was walking on the tracks in Jackson. I saw a deer, I walked over to it
and It looked at me in the eye and said:
“Do you see this world around you, do you see the trees, do you see the flora and fauna,
do you see how we swing and we sway and we moan with the morning winds and the evening tide, do you see the sun setting in the West?”

I looked around and I noticed it for the first time in months.

and I said “ya, ya I understand I see that”
and the deer said: “look closer do you really understand do you really see what’s going on?”

and I looked again and I saw the rising of cities and I saw the destruction of lands that I had never seen before.
and it came to me in a vision that this all at once terrible and frightening

and I said: “how did all this happen how did I never see it before?”

and the deer just looked at me

and I said: “I don’t understand.”
the deer looked at me again and said: “you don’t understand.”

the deer walked away into the forest; I could not follow.

Chorus: Tossed about in a sea of words
Reading and talking fenced in with the herd
Harvest time, harvesting
Revised revisiting
The same scar on my mind
All that is weak, all that’s despised

After months of sleeping in the city I took the night train to Jackson I got off in the terminal and I walked in front and I saw the deer lying in the tracks. I looked at it in the eyes and the deer looked at me with a sign of faint recognition.

and I said: how did this happen?”

and the deer glanced at the huge machine next to me, the titanic monster, paving the way for civilization.

and the deer said: “Do you see now, do you understand?”

and I looked around me, the city, at the train, at the nightmares of man.

and I said: “I understand.”
the deer said: “then do something about it!”

Matthew 7: 1-14

Judging Others
7 “Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. 2 For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3 Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s[a] eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your neighbor,[b] ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while the log is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s[c] eye.

Profaning the Holy
6 “Do not give what is holy to dogs; and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under foot and turn and maul you.

Ask, Search, Knock
7 “Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. 9 Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? 10 Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

The Golden Rule
12 “In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.

The Narrow Gate
13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy[d] that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. 14 For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
