Therefore- Green Eggs And Ham

Mar 21, 2021 | Chris McRae

I do not like green eggs and ham; I do not like them, Sam-I-Am

I do not like them on a boat; I do not like them with a goat

I do not like them on a train; or in the dark or in the rain

I do not like them here or there; I do not like them anywhere!

I’ll tell you what else I do not like, calling GOOD THINGS BAD and WRONG THINGS RIGHT

They’ve come and tried to destroy our structure, barging in with this cancel-culture

With angry expressions, they were sent to come to us with their agenda

You know what else makes me see red? Attacking Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato Head

Or Speedy Gonzales or Pepé Le Pew, and Berenstain Bears, to name a few!

You can’t say that or you can’t say this. Well, I’VE HAD ENOUGH, and I’ve made a list!

Cancel-culture has crossed a line, and I believe that it’s past time

For the Body of Christ to take a stand! Joined in unity all over the land!

On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand

ALL OTHER GROUND IS SINKING SAND

With cancel-culture I disagree, that we can’t say words like “he” or “she”

The Bible for me settled this issue. If this makes you mad, then grab a tissue

Male and female God created them, and WHO ARE WE TO CHALLENGE HIM?

He came to earth as a babe in a manger, to this kind of lobe we alll were strangers

See, Jesus came to save the lost and He died upon that old rugged cross

Laid in that tomb for three whole days, the defeated foes were death, hell, and the grave!

He arose with all power, dominion, and might. With stone rolled away HE FINISHED that fight!

We can fight, too; the church must stand up! Been silent too long and I’VE HAD ENOUGH!

The church at one time had abandonded her post, losing her freedom and the things we love most

THIS IS THE TIME WHERE WE TAKE IT ALL BACK

YES, WE WILL STAND UP AND GET BACK ON TRACK

I STARTED THIS POEM WITH GREEN EGGS AND HAM

BUT IT’S REALLY ABOUT

THE GREAT I AM
