On Guard - May, 31, 2001

On Guard
(c) May, 31, 2001

Some men flirt with Hades
Tease the king that reigns
Then lose the gift of life
when earthly debts are paid.

Beware the posing teacher
who stills the wind of trust
stirs the dust of rumor
and feeds the fire of lust

Fear the hollow promise
of leaders bound to chains
Their gift of borrowed riches
will stain your soul with shame

Be watchful of the greed
that grows inside your fence
it's wicked seed is torment
till maddness claims your sense

Post your guards at once
before horror storms the gates
Evil waits for no man
I pray you're not too late

by Ricky D. McKean
