I am ready to be sought, though they do not ask;
found by those who seek me not, who don’t answer back.
Hands of guidance I hold out, offer an embr-ace.
They continue to rebel; walk in their own wa-y.
They don’t even try to hide shameful things they d-o.
Day and night my law they slight, digging their own tombs.
“Keep your distance,” they demand. I am irked for su-re.
One fine day I will repay; wrath they will endure.
Sin by them and all their kin, I will not ig-no-re.
They will get what’s coming, I’ll – add a little more.
Some will say “for servants’ sake don’t destroy them all.”
So I’ll leave a few to grieve, just how far they fa-ll.
