Not Left Behind
The recent Pope is put out to pasture,
And my thoughts turn to the Christian Rapture,
Saint Malachy's prophecy comes to mind,
Christians praying not to be left behind.
Pope Benedict XVI's successor,
Will be the last Pope before the Rapture,
I wish to be 'caught up', not left behind,
To face 'Tribulation', amongst the blind.
In the Book of Revelation, you'll find,
That those who are not 'saved' are left behind,
According to the ancient prophecy,
Petrus Romanus has the 'papacy'.
I strive to be one who's not left behind,
During the Apocalypse, the End Time,
A time of famine, disasters, disease,
Hatred, crime, war, political unease.
Greed, persecution in every nation,
Seven years of 'great tribulation',
It will be hell of a different kind,
And I hope to be gone, not left behind.
