You can make oatmeal w/o salt--tastes kinda plain,
Today was sunny and nice, not a chance of rain.
My emotions are washed out, not a race car, just a carriage,
I just found out my church (former) doesn't encourage marriage.
Ice cream needs to stay cold; planes need speed to stay aloft,
When you get a cold, your lungs will eventually need to cough.
Dark clouds bring snow or rain, leaving travellers in a lurch,
For some reason, I thought marriage was desired by the church.
But no, I found out my church does not to marriage tether,
You can be a member even if you live together.
Ephesians 5 says "not to let a hint of sexual immorality" in your midst,
Maybe pastor was sick in seminary--that class he missed.
"It doesn't matter", the pastor intones, using his pastoral heft,
Wonder if he noticed, one of his sheep has left.
Values are important, which ones will you live by?
It's amazing how fast life actually does by us fly.
Make the adjustments you think need to be made,
Following values you don't believe causes enthusiasm to fade.
Before you live forever, you have to live today,
Never forget your convictions-it makes a difference what you say.

Dave likes to put together words to make poems. Sometimes the rhythms are great and sometimes they are a stretch. Either way they will make you think, make you laugh, make you wonder what's going on with Dave. :)
