The Day Of Reckoning

The Day Of Reckoning

Denim and silk,

scotch whiskey and milk.

Green eggs and ham,

a woman and a man.

All odd and unusual blends.


Water and oil,

a hero and foil.

Laughter and screams,

reality and dreams.

are all left at opposite ends.

 Foul weather or fair,

clean water and air.

The earth and the sky,

say hello to goodbye.

When the day of reckoning descends.


When the you and the me,

the he and the she.

The we and the they,

the young and the grey.

Are all praying alas, to ascend.


Yet, the good and the bad,

the lass and the lad.

The faker and seer,

from far and from near.

Will not know, just what, He intends.
