TO BE BEGUILED or NOT TO BE
By Patrick N. Kramer
Written July 19, 2010

My Dear Friends the poem that follows is written in a mannerism meant to remind the reader. It is up to each of us to listen to temptations or not. I prefer to do what is right as my soul tells it is so by the good feelings I receive in so doing. I know not if you will be willing to use this one but felt it might fit well. Please do read it to the end as I think You will like it better by so doing. Remember to be beguiled is to be deceived just as the serpent did to Eve. May God bless!

Oh do look at that cat in that angry way.
Do as I whisper; and do kick it out of your way.
After all didn’t God give dominion over it to you?
Go ahead mistreat it he gave that right to you.

Of those animals made by God do treat them cruel.
Truthfully I’m not out to make you look a fool.
Dominion he gave there is only one soul here to save.
Just listen to my voice and show me how you’re brave.

Do as I tempt you to do and do it without fear.
Show me my whisperings voice indeed you do hear.
I tell you there is nothing wrong here and I do not lie.
Oh please do allow yourself to be beguiled; by such as I.

[Ed. Note] This poem expresses the reason that there is so much violence in the world today...The vast majority of people have allowed themselves to be beguiled by the devil to believe that it is alright to harm God's creation.
