DON'T FENCE ME IN

by GEORGE CAMPOS
(ONTARIO, CA. - USA)

Give me land, lots of land
under starry skies above
Don't fence me in....
Remember that song?

Reminded me of the time
I was sitting on a fence
A large group was assembled
And I became astounded.

On one side stood Jesus
On the other side stood Satan
Both men the people were calling
Each person their side choosing.

I joined neither group
Just stood there wondering
Then Jesus and His group disappeared
As did Satan somewhat perplexed!!

I was left alone on the fence
Satan returned looking for something
I asked, is there something lost
He said NO, you're the cost!!

But I said, Satan I made no choice
That's right but you had freedom to choose
Since Jesus wasn't your choice-
Come with me, Satan screamed in loud voice!!
