The Persecutor


The blasphemy must stop without delay,

Gamaliel was wrong to let it go,

We march Damascus road this very day

To cleanse us finally of this one foe,

The high priest has agreed with me on this

And signed a letter of authority,

We must not in our actions be remiss

To swiftly follow his approved decree,

The Law passed judgment on the Nazarene

And judges his disciples all the same,

The Law observes no difference between

The man and those who preach his outlawed name,

I pray for strength to search in every town

For those who’ve turned our order upside down.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
