with, or without?

Rhyme

Shakespeare made the phrase popular, using it in his play The Comedy of Errors, written in 1590: “Was there ever any man thus beaten out of season, When in the why and the wherefore is neither rhyme nor reason?”

Ephesians 5:30-32

For we are members of His body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”  This mystery is profound, but I am speaking about Christ and the church.

2 Timothy 1:10-12

And now He has revealed this grace through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has abolished death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the gospel, 11 to which I was appointed as a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher.

12 For this reason, even though I suffer as I do, I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him for that day.

The Real Thing

Snow White is so pure, smell her line I know for sure.

With my blade I cut the line, I try to make it oh so fine.

Her effects give me a peak, a sensation that I seek.

A little taste numbs my lip , and reminds me of the drip.

Such a pleasure I can’t forsake, and a risk I like to take.

All her beauty I adore, I can’t get enough, I need more.

Exodus 9:16

But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display My power to you, and that My name might be proclaimed in all the earth.

1 Timothy 1:15-17

This is a trustworthy saying, worthy of full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the worst.

16 But for this very reason I was shown mercy, so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display His perfect patience as an example to those who would believe in Him for eternal life.

17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen

2 Timothy 1:5-7

I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am convinced is in you as well.

6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control.

John 12:37-38

Wonder Weed

The small round seed is the key, that’s worth so much, yet is free.

The budding plant from this seed, is the root of many a man’s greed.

They’ll sell the buds to some anxious buyer, determined to get a little bit higher.

The piney scent we know so well, enhances the product they want to sell.

Once it’s bought, if you’re caught, you’ll be in jail looking for bail.

The trusty bong is the only way to make it worth the price you pay.

Clouds of smoke hang low in the air, but no one really seems to care.

Laying back and mellowing out, figuring out what it’s all about.

Cranking tunes and having fun, anything goes under the sun.

New Phase

In younger Days, I knew the Plays, to locate the Hays, on which to Graze, my eyes were a Glaze, my brain in a Daze, my body it Lays, catching the Rays, I’ve mastered the Maze, of that hazy Phase, no longer I Laze, ’cause a clean life Pays, this sincerely Conveys, a poem that Portrays, a tired old Craze, of David E. Ways.

John 12:39-41

For this reason they were unable to believe. For again, Isaiah says: 40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so that they cannot see with their eyes, and understand with their hearts, and turn, and I would heal them.”

41 Isaiah said these things because he saw Jesus’ glory and spoke about Him.
