Sangre de Cristo! The blood of Christ!
Rallying cry, not always nice!
For His sacred honor
Man performs foul deeds

All in the name
Of the savior who bleeds!
Pontius Pilate
Let Barabbas go

Said he bowed to will of the people
Then washed his hands, don’t cha know?
Poor timid Judas
Turned in his boss

For thirteen pieces of silver
His honor he lost
On giants’ shoulders
We pygmies do rest!

Nit picking through their wisdom
To feather our rats’ nests
Great pearls of wisdom
Cast before us swine

Damn so many to perdition
In the name of divine
Do unto others
As you would have them love unto you

My misquotation
Of Golden Rule!
Greatest two commandments
According to Jesus

Love your brother like yourself
And give Yahweh his due
But we evil minions
Who follow his footsteps

Make declarations that
I’m sure the good Lord upsets
Pick and parse
From His holy book

To give our side advantage
And the other to rook
Hippocrates
He had a great oath

First do no harm
As you dispatch some health
Hippocrates and hypocrite
May sound alike

But like glory and glower
One hurts and one empowers
Deep well of emotion
From which Lord gave us to drink

Adds spice to our living
Makes us feel as well as think
When I am joyful
Loving and glad

Vigorously promote
Warm feelings I have
But when I have anger,
Jealousy, envy or hate

It’s with self
I first try to debate
Negative emotions
I do not push them down

But rather than speak harshly
Instead examine wounded pride
For fault with our brothers
Is often fault with our self

Miscommunication
Can create wide and deep gulfs
So stop for a moment
Next time you feel hurt

Rather than responding harshly
With epithets quite curt
Examine the world
From brother’s point of view

Amazing what a little
Patience and empathy can do
Eye for an eye
Tit for tat

Roland for an Oliver
Getting even for that
A never ending cycle
That swirls us down the drain

But if we wish to ascend
We need to engage our brain
Brothers and sisters
Friends and foes

I’m crying in the wilderness
Things we all should know
Time to put into practice
Simple loving creed

And try to damp down
On our anger and greed
Hippocrates
And hypocrites

Inside each of us
Will we reach out
With healing hands
Or with fists?

Busting our brothers
In the nose when they
Look at us sideways?
Maybe it’s time

To try Lord’s cheek turning way
If we would do unto others
As we would have them do unto us
And start weeding out our garden

Of our deep seated hatred
And mistrust
We might just find
That here on this earth

Each of us has value
And each of us has worth
Sangre de Cristo! The blood of Christ!
Rallying cry, not always nice!

For His sacred honor
Man performs foul deeds
All in the name
Of the savior who bleeds

Pontius Pilate
Let Barabbas go
Said he bowed to will of the people
Then washed his hands

As you know
Poor timid Judas turned in his boss
For thirteen pieces of silver
His honor he lost
