From The Ground Level
On the level ground everyone can see the summit
even at night if it is well lit.
But even if you are close to the edge
or far away from it
no one can see a negative summit
(which is the same as the bottom of a pit)
even if it is well lit.
So on the ground level
watch out for the devil
but look to the
as a source of Light.
For it cannot be denied
that God did provide
even the moon and stars
to rule the night.
A Tough Out
If in baseball you are a tough out
then your agent will have a lot of clout
in the negotiation of your contract.
But it is tough to pull out
when the future is in doubt
about conditions in
by a foreign force
it was not too tough for us to decide
that the proper course...
of action was to liberate their land.
So now we must decide
in the case of
whether to give them
their country back
or force them to live under a foreign command.
