Humility

Have we no shame

Unravelling nations and peoples;

Milling through their resources for our own gain,

Insisting we are justified.

Look at the dead in our wake!

Is this what humbleness looks like

Taking what’s theirs as ours

Yet claiming we are righteous?

Proponent of the Poor (Acrostic)

Proponent for the poor as the Good Book says,

Obeying the word divinely inspired in antiquity.

Practicing that which has for so long been preached,

Even amongst ever growing unpopularity.

Finally–perhaps a corner has been turned,

Revealing a man worthy of this sacrosanct reign.

Allowing himself to be humbled as others had not learned;

Nursing those whose lives epitomize great pain.

Could his motives be this solemn and pure

Iesvs Nazarenvs Rex Ivdaeorvm so commanded;

Saving of souls through teaching assured,

                            …this as our God has demanded.
