The Great Deluge

“Like the great deluge of waters that covered the earth,
Are we facing a new deluge covering our lands,
COVID 19?”

Some say this Pandemic is a hoax, some disagree, but
could this phenomena be equated with those that
happened centuries ago?

An onslaught of water disrepaired

A perfect creation gone astray

Gods children had strayed

Until that final decision left God with

No choice, but to erase the results

Of crime and decay

To cleanse the earth from its evil ways

The people looked upon this scene

With laughter, sneering

A silly old grey headed man noticed

Not, he just kept on building his ark

The gates of peaceful waters unhinged

Torrents and floods broke through

The leviathan once forging the deep

Is tossed about, as the humped back

Whale, he became distraught

A great ship bearing eight people

And animals two of a kind, sped

Over trembling waters

And when Noah, his wife, three sons

And their wives lay down to sleep

Their boat shook and shuddered

The planks muttered with labor pains

About to give birth to a new world

Of the old none would remain

Loosing track of days and nights

Of darkness, only light from

Visiting angels wafting their wings

With heavenly light

Claps of thunder roaring

Holding on with each other

For dear life

But God had said, forty days

And nights then you shall emerge

Replenishing the earth

And they remembered His

Promise, no sea nor

Pain of this global event

Could prevent this ship

For it bore the progenitor

Of man and beast

Even though the waves increased

And when God looked down with a

Frown on His face

And saw the devastation

He had to take

Never again would he destroy with waters

What he had made

A tower of safety with its watchful

Eye would always follow the sailor’s

Plight

He blew upon the deep as the boat

Slowly floated to Mt Ararat, hidden from

View, and it takes a lot of faith to

Believe all that

And centuries later another great event arose,

Ten in all, plagues sent

On a haughty king that refused

To believe, to let God’s people go

His servants laughed at the words

Of God’s humble man

Spurning his warning

But he and his armies all died

In the depths where a road had

Been divided

Down through the age

Many more disasters fell

These calamities spurned as well

Again a remonstrance from above

“Bring all your children apart as

Another great deluge has fallen”

A great pandemic encompasses

Our globe

Some with fear, some with lack

Of heeding the warnings told, refusal

To comply with safety protecting

And so the havoc of COVID 19 is

Happening

Could this be the beginning of the

Four horsemen and their warning

Spilling their potions on the lands

In mourning?

John of Patmos, called deranged

His message and his writings spurned as

Well

Escaped a boiling pot of oil

persecuted for his faith, down

through the ages his writings

presented to kings and royalty

often rejected

But God’s love is inviting all to

Come, receiving protection from

all of these things

For where else can we go?
