The Irony

O Earth, Earth,
Who has no ears,
Hear the word of God!

Before you set
The way of life
And the way of death,
And you chose
To die.

The land you see
You will see no more.
The land you desire
Won't embrace you now.

I spoke to you
In your prosperity,
Yet you only cry out
In your poverty.

I will turn back
The weapons of war
You hold in your hands,
And allow those
Who seek your demise
To vent My wrath.

These lands to you
I did give,
and now
From you I take
And give
to other hands.

Jeremiah 20 and 21
