Pushin' and prayin' for a paradigm shift in Humanity's stinkin' thinkin'.

"I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Matthew 10:16

Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
A cultural phenomena
"Biggest flip-flop in History?" by djeckert
It started back in the year two thousand and four
a phenomenon leaving Americans clamoring for more

The fantastic story about, "THIS earthly world", as seen on the t.v.
About the pinnacle of success we are "trained"
to want to work to achieve.

Up in his borrowed tower, perched THE star, and THE business man...
The maker and the breaker, of all of our lofty "wordly" plans

To gain his support,
contestants maneuvered ,
and strategized and schemed
To avoid hearing those words made up of America's worst nightmarish dreams

The 'world' ate it all up, and found themselves smitten, and completely mired
Desirous of hearing those two dreaded words, telling a contestant, "You're fired!"

But another group of people, they were not at all impressed
They thought that everybody graced with life, was already so blessed

They weren't obsessed upon what mere men can scheme
to greedily achieve,
but rather, on what God made sure that each one of us,
can through Christ, receive

They thought many things more important than a proud, and obnoxious goofy man
Like counting all the blessings that fall from God's most gracious hand

Blessings, like seeking another kingdom that is much more richly profound
Where we can ALL be humbly adorned with a Grace begotten Crown

This group also craved Liberty and Justice, and retaining for all of man...
the God- given free will claimed for mankind
back when America began

For mammon was not who or what, these people aimed to hopelessly please
This businessman in his borrowed tower, he seemed to be such a sleeze

"What does everyone see in this man?" They would ask the world, bemused
"And why do worldly people fall for such an empty fantasy ruse?"

So they hated on this funny, golden-haired, arrogant king of a toad
And thought that the plot of a 'worldly apprentice' was growing to be quite old

But, then, like a pharoah's son turned Moses, the toad took a different kind of stand
To put America first and, "Make her great again" was revealed to be his inspiring long game plan

(Did the Toad see some kind of a burning bush?
And talk to the great, "I Am"?)

Reading from "the script" of wordly power was growing to be quite old
America needed to "get real again", and needed someone bold

The infrastructure that built this toad's highfalutin tower
Was much taken aback, much like pharoah
by the sudden afront
on its worldly power

The flip and the flop then occured
on that historic, November day
When 'the world', and its tower of power, it was tripped-up! and then, it precariously swayed

So that their distressed wordly god, and the scripted pharoah power, would still be able to stand...
the lovers of 'this world', they flipped their allegiance and love away from that, now 'awful, wordly man'

They read, with wanton abandon, from 'this world's' new, scripted plan...
To now hate on the politician... the suddenly racist and intolerant man

And the lovers of the bigger and higher things,
than the Pharoah's army of clowns...
They NOW employed that toad to become a NEW 'apprentice' to bring the tower down

As the toad echoes out God's command to the world, of "Let my people go!"

"You're fired! "
Endlessly echoes the wishes
of 'this world's' Pharoah

Of course, in a world where fake real news, and real fake news, never seems to stop...
One slave to "this world's" desperate flip,
is the free-willed man's great flop

There has been many cultural flips in the world
and many more cultural flops
But if a list of the biggest flip-flops were compiled, this one would clearly be at the top

Of course there is only one real Savior
To save us 'fallen man'
Whether this flip-flop comes to something or not,
It's all in Our Creator's hands
