A Deadly Crop

Mushroom


Galatians 6:7
New International Version (NIV)

7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.


(At 5:29:45 am on the morning of July 16th, 1945, the first atomic bomb was successfully tested at Alamogordo, New Mexico)


Mushrooms

Way back in 1945
We lit a fuse that slowly burns,
In the early morning desert as we watched
The mushrooming of our most dire concerns,

We had unleashed a mighty power
And it brought to close an awful war,
But ever since we struck that match
There’s been terror like never before,

Some things are better left unlearned,
Some things should stay unknown,
For we are only mortal men
Who must reap what we have sown,

So we hold our breath within the dark
As nightmares take hold our dreams,
And pray we find the way to peace
Before the hawks unfold some dreadful scheme,

Dear Lord above we beg and plead,
We fall face down upon the Earth,
Please save us from our evil minds
And this darkness we have birthed.

Father,

Forgive us and save us from the darkness we have chosen.
