my thoughts after the debate

i told my friend
it feels like we’re choosing
the last emperor
before the american empire falls
where will we stand
if this kingdom collapses
beneath our feet
on the rock or on the ruins

but for now will i love
the world God loved
enough to bleed for
when its people cry for mercy
will i bless or will i curse
when its leaders call for peace
will i pray or will i profane
and will i stand aside and be silent
when it calls for my voice

can i be a good citizen
of the city of God
and still sow and reap blessings
from the city of man?
