Councilmen Came And Took The Sun Away

councilmen came and took the sun away
right where the children played
and they decreed

no more praying on your knees
To the God of the heavenlies
you pray to us instead

for oh your daily bread

and so much more.
but in a time of war
cold or otherwise

how could they know of
the heartbeat that prays on
as saints are taught to do

some children too
in dire emergency

when far from home.
make every heart His throne
the angels cried

in this, our mercenary exile.
there is no civility
there are no verities

without the sunrise of His love
between us
