He Came for Us

Originally submitted to:
Christ, by Heinrich Hofmann

They cheated those people,
they who see themselves as justified.
Once they were kings and Pharisees
controlling the poor
and uneducated
with superstitions, rituals and laws.
Today they are politicians
with vile serpent like tongues
and tempting lies.

They cheated those people
in the Messiah's day
as in the present.
Convincing the underclass of society
that they lack value
compared to those who forge decrees
and interpret doctrine for their own use.

Today we divide
by origin,
or shade of flesh.
We stand for this truth
or that fallacy,
always right and never wrong.

Remember always,
He came for the abused,
He came for the overburdened,
He came for those
by a diseased culture.
He came for those
who did not expect Him to look in their direction.
And the pious, the cheaters,
could do nothing but watch.
