The Gory Details

Al Gore's Hearing on Global Warming

A humorous look at Al Gore in poetic verse.

Al Gore’s campaign was full of story-tales,
His half-truths were beyond recognition.
Creator of the Internet, himself he hailed,
The praises rang with each News edition.
As Election Day drew nearer, Gore’s plan was clear.
“I want the Presidency, I’ll do what ever it takes.”
His plan would have George Bush’s name smeared,
Even Dredging up 25-year-old mistakes.
But Bush was planted in the light of truth,
Never denying the sins he committed.
Mistakes, once made in the flagrancy of youth,
Repentant, he quietly admitted.
Well, Gore pumped up his political ammunition,
Never minding the dirty tallies in his haste.
Shooting in the dark in his democratic position,
The chad-full ballots blew up in his face.
Now when the smoke all cleared, Bush wasn’t burned
But was planted firmly by the river of life.
The fruits of his labor God has confirmed
As he stood tall through Gore’s smoke screen of strife.
Florida’s Secretary of State did her duty in spite of it all.
Catherine Harris certified the vote as counted.
Little did she know who she would be called?
Cruella Deville, Gore’s camp had her touted.
The Judges and officials have all done their best
To make this presidential race run smooth,
But America’s patience is put to the test
As Gore’s team of lawyers brings yet another suit.
Well, little Al Gore’s screaming “It’s not fair”
Let’s count and recount some more.
No other election result quite compares
To the mighty tantrum cries of the famed Al Gore.
I know the presidency you would like to take,
But, Mr. Gore all your schemes have failed.
So please, Mr. Gore, for Heaven’s sake,
Spare us these Gory details.


About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderfully challenging children and nine grandkids, of whom I am very proud. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, for the last ten years or so and am working on a final edit, now. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community around the world. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
