”(Suffer) little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me:
for of such is the kingdom of heaven.’’
– even Jesus died through callous betrayal.
To Supper, a treat unto myself
I add an extra ingredient:
A prayer for the suffering
children (mere animals)
hang the curtain – high and proper
while calling: Mercy! Mercy!
unto me too
Nelson Mandela said:
”There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
(8 May 1995)
Disclaimer: I’m not a Christian.
I’m not either…..but your poem moved me greatly. We have so many babies killed in Atlanta ..caught in the crossfire of thugs.
