E very week the minister would speak harsh words wrapped in cordial words of kindness:
L iving this life they’ve given us is irritating!” he would proclaim, “It leads to blindness:
U nited we must stand up against those who would enslave us and take away our rights!
S tanding shoulder-to-shoulder we must march together in protest against them and fight!
I nterrupted by clapping and cheering and whistling and a thunderous standing ovation,
V isions of self-promoted grandeur swelled his head with adrenalized aggravation.
E veryone, it seemed, swooned at every word he spoke and bought every irritated lie;

A ll except a remnant who chose to stay in God’s Word and promote The Giver of Life.
L ooking around at the crowd he noticed the remnant who refused to stand and cheer;
O minously, he realized those people could hold back or possibly even ruin his career.
O ff to his side he motioned his usher guards to have the remnant immediately removed;
F orbidden to attend or return to the minister’s congregation, the remnant was reproved.
N evertheless, the remnant fought back and met anyway in the unity of The Holy Spirit:
E lusive, the minister’s usher guards could not find the remnant as they prayed for him.
S o be-aware my friend, not every minster preaches God’s righteousness from the pulpit:
S ome are ravening wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing—just actors—they are the culprit.

Wow this is a powerful statement. You also are quite talented with your technique. Your words flow effortlessly and the rhymes sing beautiful notes. You make this look easy but I know it is anything but. It also gives the reader much to ponder.

You call to be aware is creatively formatted. You've got me thinking.

In a few words, you say a lot. Your cadence, rhyme and alliteration are masterful and the message is powerful.
