Dandelion

Humble brother

Sister contrite

No better other

In my sight

 

Smallest of these

Greatest of us

You I seek

Held above

 

Prince in shackles

Pauper in silk

Devil cackles

Halos tilt

 

Our human order

Far from divine

Iniquity hovers

Flies on swine

 

All was taught

We chose oblivion

Sold and bought

False division

 

Simple and perfect

Common rarity

Stop and reflect

Love’s theology

 

Find the lost

Embrace the hated

Gospel brought

Heart donated

 

Outside in

Inside out

Soul within

Lost then found

 

Human mission

Faith alive

Free decision

Open mind

 

Peace intended

Spirit’s gift

Fractured is mended

Sealed the rift

 

Arrogant resist

Themselves served

Ignorance lived

Following herd

 

Suicidal pride

Crownless kings

From truth hide

Worshipping things

 

Still I preach

Better living

Faithful I teach

Lowly serving

 

Breaking bread

Sharing wine

Love undead

Forgiveness divine
