Posts Tagged ‘DON’T TURN THE POST’

Now and then I see where prankster

Has turned a corner post;

And “Main” becomes “Franklin,”  

And “Franklin” “Main” – almost.

2

Locals know that “Main” is “Main,”

Not turning where miss-signed,

And the turned-street labels

Make them to humor inclined.

3

But to the traveler on his journey

From his home to city far,

Doesn’t know the sign is wrong

And his day can fully mar

4

By the miss-labeled street.

He may turn and travel long,

Only to sadly learn

His miles and hours were wrong.

5

If the devil can spin the signs,

Call that “Narrow” which is “Broad,”

And call the “Broadway,” “Narrow”

Leading folks away from God.

6

Then satan may see them die,

Die despairing of Calvary’s cost,

Because they turned the wrong corner

And were forever lost.

7

Preacher, don’t be a prankster,

Turning the sign on the corner post,

“Winning” people by your humor,

Not preaching with the Holy Ghost.

8

And Traveler, oft check the map,

It the narrow and broad has told.

Remember, the adage is still true,

“All that glitters is not gold.”
