Inspired by the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) right after the inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States of America. I received a lot of flak in early 2009 for penning this poem. It’s more precise to say it was an out flowing from the Holy Spirit than a poem. Many detractors were upset that I could write such a thing about the “First Black President”. “ When G_D gives you something in the Spirit, follow HIM and do what ever it is He tells you”.
John 2:1-5Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 2 On Tuesday[a] there was a wedding at Kanah in the Galil; and the mother of Yeshua was there. 2 Yeshua too was invited to the wedding, along with his talmidim. 3 The wine ran out, and Yeshua’s mother said to him, “They have no more wine.” 4 Yeshua replied, “Mother, why should that concern me? — or you? My time hasn’t come yet.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

Poem: Rome or America ?
To lose your Soul as a Great Nation, destruction follows and nobody seems to perceive its means of arrival.
A beautiful Nation losing her Love for the LORD, the very thing that has caused her greatness and Majesty.
She is blindly running headlong towards the great abyss that flourishing nations before her found themselves toppling into.
Once a Powerful Nation, reduced to little more than obscure memories of her existence.
Never to be seen again because she sold her birthright to the highest bidder, expediting her demise.
Her former Grandeur viewed like the landscape of some distant land that once was, but is now a mire shadow of the dream she aspired to become.
Tossed onto the scrap heap of time, never to be seen or marveled at for the excellence for which she began, but merely besmirched as a footnote in the annuls of time. Disregarded as a failure!
Relegated to the past, never to lift her head from the crucible of history, nor realizing her incapacity to comprehend the extinguishing of Liberty’s flame.
Her citizens DEAD to reason, suffering from the obesity of luxury, immorality and callous indignation to her first love, The Lord!
This most dangerous of roads paved with great riches, indifference, apathy, entitlement, corruption, and finally sold for a price to foreigners.
With fear and trembling she contemplates the weight of a tax laden citizenry on which she rode, as she ponders the death approaching on the Horizon.
Only in the final moments of her destruction does she scream, “The Road“!
Only now, in her final moments of existence does she understand “Once the road was traversed, there was no return, for it was but One Way! And it led to HER Destruction!

Comment from author: If you look at where America is after six years of Barack Obama, “Isn’t this poem revealing what’s happening to America right now”? Our country is running headlong down the opposite road that we should be going, and we all know it. G_D will not keep quiet for America’s treatment of Israel, for the sin of rejecting what HE has said is Holy and Righteous in HIS commandments, and for idolatry.
