Inspired by Matthew 23:13-37
judgment, mercy, faith—
but there are enemies we love to hate,
sinners we aren’t sorry for.
Pharisees, for instance.
No one hesitates to cast stones
at self-righteous Puritans.
They have their reward.
Even Jesus called them out.
Surely he’ll forgive our failure
to cry Jerusalem, Jerusalem!
over a few worthless chickens.
It’s a shame they can’t see as we do
all the dead bones
they hold inside.
