You Think You Are In Charge


Hellicane: Poets Respond to Hurricane Katrina

You think you are in charge\r\nYou don\'t even have a clue\r\nWalking around here full of sin\r\nDoing whatever it is you want to do\r\n\r\nBut, ahhhh, now your eyes have been opened\r\nAnd now you finally see\r\nThat with a stroke of his hands\r\nGOD took away a whole city\r\n\r\nA city yes, that was definetly full of sin\r\nAnd you think this is the end and have no where to run\r\nGOD told me to mention this in my poem\r\nHe said \"My wrath has just begun\"\r\n\r\nYou can\'t run from it or even try to hide\r\nBecause when you look around you\'ll see\r\nThat your sins are being televised\r\nI pray for the young and elderly\r\n\r\nThey are the innocent victims here\r\nAs a matter of fact I pray for you all\r\nIt\'s not the looters or the rapists\r\nYou need to be afraid of\r\n\r\nIt is GOD you need to fear\r\n\r\nSo this is your last warning\r\nAfter this there will be no more\r\nGOD said evacuate to His Superdome\r\n...Or be left standing at the door\r\n
