It Isn't Just a Rumour


Alice c. Bateman

I have stood among the people

But not stood in their way

I have watched them grow and change

As they pass me every day


For most of a whole decade

I've listened and I've seen

I don't like what is happening

It's getting way too mean


We murder unborn babies

Put our old folks into homes

And spend huge sums of money

On shiny bits of chrome


We're disgusting Mother Nature

And God is getting mad

He's going to come and show us

What it means to be our Dad


I hope you can look back and say

I've lived an honest life

Loved all of my children

Been faithful to my wife


I've never hurt a neighbour

Nor killed a friend or foe

And if I lose direction

God shows me where to go


If these things aren't true of you, my friend

You'd better change your ways

It isn't just a rumour

This talk of Judgement Day
