An Incremental Thing
Poetry by Lance Landall

Dare to be a Daniel, but hey, whatís a little compromise, Seems to be an attitude, that today is on the rise. Yes, stand up for your beliefs, let the world know where you stand, But whatís a little compromise; after all, theyíll understand.

Itís clear to me, that compromise, is an incremental thing, Fueled by, ďThe end justifies the means,Ē that many these days sing. It all starts with that first step, down the compromising track, Which occurs when oneís thinking starts to get a little slack.

One cannot be a Daniel, and a compromiser too, As thatís an oxymoron, thatís like selling non-stick glue. So, either weíre a Daniel, or a Daniel we are not, As a person canít be both; and hypocrisy, folk will spot.

When it comes to what God wants, and Scriptureís admonition, There clearly isnít any room, for a Laodicean condition. Weíre either heading upwards, or making our way downhill, And only heading upwards, will fulfill our Fatherís will.

If something is wrong, itís wrong, itís no good saying itís right, In fact, itís called delusion, when whatís black, we treat as white. Itís the same with compromise, for thatís kidding ourselves too, That we can be like Daniel, yet, questionable things pursue.

Dare to be a Daniel, but hey, whatís a little compromise; I donít mean to trivialize, but letís not over-emphasize. Yes, sing dare to be a Daniel, but hey, not too frequently, After all, itís just a song, taken far too seriously.

Well, such sentiments donít gel, with either God or Daniel, And if they donít gel with them, I believe theyíll lead to ill. Yes, neither God nor Daniel, ever sought to compromise, Therefore, our witness, and their example, should harmonize.
