Iâ€™m at my wits end with celebrity news
About sinful pleasures, about pompous views.
The public adores them and copies their styles
Of glittering hairdos and white, toothy smiles.
Iâ€™m at my wits end with obscene TV shows
With strutting starlets in very tight clothes,
With daddies portrayed stupid, not bright,
With cops and gangsters, who shoot through the night.
Iâ€™m at my wits end of folks living together,
Who arenâ€™t even married â€“ donâ€™t care whatsoever.
God hates this sin of dire fornication!
It ruins families, the strength of our nation.
Iâ€™m at my wits end with homosexual rights â€“
Coming out of the closet with pride of their plights.
Their mocking of marriage is ungodly to me;
Applause of this action is a â€śgayâ€ť travesty.
Iâ€™m at my wits end with slick politicians,
Who smile as they state their wicked positions.
They promise the world to the poor and the needy.
When all that they do is cheat and be greedy.
Iâ€™m at my wits with our justice system
That heralds the criminal and not the victim.
No mercy displayed to the innocent crowd â€“
A slap on the wrist to the evil and proud.
Iâ€™m at my wits end of folks twisting Godâ€™s Word
To fit situations that are sinful and blurred.
Verses are used to excuse their â€śfunâ€ť folly,
And the Holy Spirit seems senseless and jolly.
Oh Lord, When are you coming to set things aright
On a glorious cloud, a glorious sight?
The evil of this world will be history
Because youâ€™re at wits end with humanity!
