Folks Around Here Know You, God

Folks around here know you, God. Your address is on file.

On the grounds around your place you don’t allow what’s vile. 

—–

You inspire more awe than mountains. Strong men lose their breath.

Faced with you both horse and rider fall, as if in death.

—–

Don’t be angry, we can’t take it. Judge, then let us be.

When oppressed are saved we know your awesomeness indeed!

—–

Kings and princes learn that anger serves them not a bit.

Royal rank and social class are worth as much as spit.
