Drink the Jesus Juice prescribed
For only He can set thee free
Then dose up on the modern tools
Of healing Trinity

Get thyself a lawyer
A Therapist to probe thy mind
And I recommend my self help book
In all good book stores thee will find

And that is how healing comes
If we swallow the mission line
Take your dose of bitter medicine
And all will heal with time

Now I am not educated
I have no PHD
But it sounds a load or rubbish
To the mind of me

It sounds jingoistic
"I love you, now piss off"
"The Unsaved are our burden
Do not stand there, ahem and cough"

So take a little journey into the mind
Of the abusers neurologic soup
What made them who they was
Why he joined the Triber group

Journey to the centre
See the unholy mess
Then if it all makes sense
The hate it will confess

Hand up the gun
They'll shot themselves in the foot
And all the people will gather
To see the holy soot

Now my life is empty
Abuse is dead and I am free
No one can any longer torment
The mind of humble me

As I say above
I'm uneducated type of fool
And this could all be dismissed
As the ravings of the misplaced tool

But what if I am not wrong
Do we throw innocent lives away
Condemn them to be eternal victims
Of those who search and prey?

They put us in our box, they did
They threw away the key
They never asked our name, alas
For we were not as good you see

They only saw no beauty
That was skin deep and that is all
And they chopped us off at our knees
So we would not walk so tall

The respect they demanded
We gave it, least we be beat
And they fed us the awful Kool Aid
In the dreadful tropic heat

But we hobbled on our stumpy legs
And learnt to fly again
So now we can look down and laugh
At those evil, nasty, men

Yes, you are flying now!

I am still amazed at the journey of the past 10 years .... or rather, the flight of the past 10 years.

Amazing.

Holy Cow, has it been 10 years already? How time flies. I knew I was coming up to 8 years this October, but didn't realise it had been 10.

Now my good friend Raz. Someone asked me the other day, "Bemused, what would you change if you had a chance to run your life again", so me thinks, "write this as a poem and see what the learned masses think".

Answers on the back of a weetbix packet and send to . . . . :lol:


"What if" all the natives
Lived not that far away
Then missionaries could stay at home
And not give and go and pray

"What if" all the MKs
Never went to Boarding School
And burped out at graduation
Wise, unhurt and tall

"What if" our paths
Had never met on foreign fields
And Bible drill was just a game
Of spears and little shields

"What if" I ask myself
An old question with familiar ring
But then I think the answer is
Probably not a thing

Ten years ago, Kari and Bonnie established this website. One by one, we joined them in their eagle flight ..... there was a time when the sky seemed full of MKs and their supporters, gliding and swooping on the air currents, calling out to one another, "Me too! me too!"

As time went by, the skies felt emptier .... eventually I could only see a couple of other eagles continuing to circle and dive .....

And then ... and then, the airwaves shuddered with the broadcast of five adult MKs who came together to tell their stories of abuse and mistreatment. The Fearless Five .... their voices reached the ears of ten million people or more. Their tears were seen around the world.

The skies are full again.

CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!
Fly across the sky!
Dip and dive and dart
Holding head up high.
Bonnie said 2010
Would be a year alive
With success and
Something old would die.
GRACE! GRACE! GRACE!
Darkness took a hit
From the truth of this report
Disintegrating bit by bit
The quilt that covered up
Atrocities still unlit
Shining light on
That muddy, murky pit.
HOPE! HOPE! HOPE!
It is not too late--
Let justice fall down
Everywhere at a heady rate--
TV/ Radio/ Blogs
Any social media slate
Can turn the tables.
I. Can't. Wait.

The M.K. Prayer

Dear Lord, give me some words
To put my story on screen
Let them be kind
To those who will them be seen

But Lord, let them be true
Warts and all
For some will be offended
And some will appall

Lord, help me to understand
Those who will scream "delete"
Who will look at them and hate
What they dare not repeat


God, help them mirror
As accurate as I dare
What is my story
Warts all and fear

Finally, Almighty
Should we hear yelled "fake news"
Please forgive the anger
At such narrow views

Oh Dear Bemused, I am so, so sorry to hear what has happened in New Zealand. Just got back home to catch up with the shocking news. Such a peaceful beautiful little country to have someone kill so many people. I see the bastard is an Australian, why am I not shocked????
I just wish that those Tribers we knew when we were much younger could see the devastation that such hatred can cause, but I think we both know that they will never change!!!!

I'll send you more news in an e-mail, sorry haven't been in touch for ages, been away on working assignments.

And really love the MK prayer, so touching.

Much love.

S

Deja do! It's lovely to see you here again!

I too have been deeply saddened to hear the tragic news from NZ. So sad for all the victims of the massacre at the mosques, and for their loved ones. Sometimes it's really hard to find joy in a world where hatred and bigotry seethe everywhere. Even the good people in peaceful Kiwiland are not spared. So very sad.

Things have gone pretty quiet here. It's not that MKs aren't communicating with one another. But I think the venue for that connectedness has moved elsewhere. Anyone who thinks MKs don't care anymore about all who have been deeply wounded during their childhoods on the mission field would be very mistaken.
