DISCORD'S SHOUT!

Tumbling down through the ages,
such a tangled, ugly thread.
Weaving in and out of lives, 
filling so many hearts with dread!
Often no one really knows, 
what causes trouble to break out...
Death and mayhem, rape and pillage,
follow in the wake of discord's shout!

For some the issue is simple -
the colour of someone else's skin!
For others it's different religions, or polotics,
that allows evil in!
Greed for gold, or silver, 
or diamonds, or oil...
Can turn the heads of ordinary people,
to want another's land to as spoil!

The worst of these disputes, 
sets brother against brother.
Turns people living happily side by side,
into screaming for the blood of each other!
Who's to blame for the cruelty and horrors, 
will it go on into all our tomorrows?
What makes humanity so ready to destroy, 
why can't we learn to live in love, peace and joy?

His name is death... selfishness.. and pride, 
he brings unspeakable cruelty - often attempted genocide!
He's the enemy of God above 
and all humanity...
He has so very many names, so many faces - 
satan is known universally!
The only hope to stamp his eveil out,
is to choose to live in love and victory and Jesus' Name to Shout!
