+ 27.225 MHz 163: He Said, He Need Not Forgive

No absolution attends his claim;

he merely shifts, but does not remove, the blame;

thus shifted, he said, he need not forgive

the fault that he has so often maligned.


But that is how Christ taught us to live.


This other, of whom I speak, as only designed

his grudge into expression of false charity---


much like Judas' vociferous hypocrisy.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The last three lines allude to John 12:4-6.
