A Prophet’s Favorite Things

Gene Oneal2

Therefore, the LORD says: “I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity. (Micah 2:3)

Brimstone on sinners and pitchforks in deadbeats
Bright scorching sulphur and hot coals on their feets
Trampled down tycoons and barbecued kings
These are a few of my favorite things

God-wasted nations and crisp former rulers
Fried Robert Tiltons and smoked Robert Schullers
All the great travesties damnation brings
These are a few of my favorite things

Rich ladies burning with cash in their pockets
Lasik-tuned eyeballs that bake in their sockets
Spankin’ new Hummers that melt to the springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When they snub me
When they won’t turn
When they make me mad
I simply remember they’re all gonna burn
And then I don’t feel so bad

Flame roasted generals and charred politicians
Imploding markets and fried coalitions
Businessmen hocking their yachts, cars, and rings
These are a few of my favorite things

Great cities plundered and shaken to rubble
Vineyards and orchards and wheat fields all stubble
Boils and terror and scorpion stings
These are a few of my favorite things

Hypocrites screaming while boiling in water
Self-righteous church-goers led to the slaughter
All the damned sinners, their fannies in slings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the end comes
When the wrath blows
When it all goes bad
I hope they remember that I told them so
And then I will feel so glad

  4. How do you scorch a sinner like Maria?
