(Theology Poem) Publicans


PUBLICANS

 

Publicans, do we even know what they be

This is a Jew, who takes your money to a King

Tax Collectors, who are often guilty of extortion

Publicans, even the Lord Jesus called them sinners

Tax Collectors and Whores classed together as one

 

Self Righteous puff themselves up above, such low caste

Is anything lower than a Publican, maybe a snake in grass

We should pray for these evil ones who persecute and use us

What reward for us is there in Heaven if we act as one of them

Yet if we, only salute our loved ones, do not Publicans the same

 

Do we thank the Lord that we are not as any of these sinful ones

Is not the definition of a Heathen and a Publican the very same

Often those Society think is horrible, they are aware of their sins

Yet the self-righteous so often only show kindness to themselves

Who in deed is the real sinner, is it the Publican, or is it really us
