Thanks for Spanks

by John Janzen © 2021

To spank or not to spank?
The question now at hand
The outcomes we will rank
In hopes to understand

When I was but a child
Some things that I would do
Would warrant actions mild
And words like "Good for you!"

There was another side
that did not fare so well
That part was quick to chide
And troublemake a spell

When sorer of the two
Would rear its ugly head
Swats were laid a few
And many words were said

Were my emotions scarred?
Did violence guide my way?
Was all my thinking marred?
My soul now bound to stray?

With most of all my peers
Which spankings have received,
They wallow not in fears
Perceived or make-believed

Truth is when I recall
The tanning of my hide
I've no regrets at all
That spankings were applied

There was a godly fear
Instilled upon my mind
A truth that still rings clear
Beyond the passing time

The actions of the just
God meets with a reward
The evildoer must
Give answer to the Lord
