Watchmen

But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”  - (Luke 21:34-36 ESV)


It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood?!
Yeah right…don’t get me started
If you live here in this city of lights
You might say it’s ironic
Because so many love the darkness
So come and get your fill
In the carnival o’ carnage

Pitch black hearts hurling stones with no regard
With intent to do harm – the anger, the swarm
No prison can hold ‘em – gone is the calm
No need for a need to sound the alarm
Because the watchmen have been taken
In a hostage situation
With Stockholm syndrome, now they’ve forsaken their post
And everything they stood for on the day
That they first took the oath…

So instead of a ringing bell
Now it’s a running joke


Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers.
- (1 Timothy 4:16 ESV)


Soli Deo Gloria,
Shon
