COMRADE JESUS (Thanks to Poet's Corner)

Poets' Corner Home Page . News and Recent Additions
Poets' Corner Logo

    Comrade Jesus

      THANKS to St. Matthew, who had been
      At mass-meetings in Palestine,
      We knew whose side was spoken for
      When Comrade Jesus had the floor.
      "Where sore they toil and hard they lie,
      Among the great unwashed, swell I: --
      The tramp, the convict I am he;
      Cold-shoulder him, cold-shoulder me."
      The Dives' door, with thoughtful eye,
      He did tomorrow prophesy: --
      "The Kingdom's gate is low and small;
      The rich can scarce wedge through at all."
      "A dangerous man," said Caiaphas,
      "An ignorant demagogue, alas!
      Friend of low women, it is he
      Slanders the upright Pharisee."
      For law and order, it was plain,
      For Holy Church, he must be slain.
      The roops where there to awe the crowd:
      And "violence" was not allowed.
      Their clumsy force with force to foil
      His strong, clean hands he would not soil.
      He saw their childishness quite plain
      Betweent the lightnings of his pain.
      Between the twilights of his end
      He made his fellow-felon friend:
      With swollen tongue, and blinding eyes,
      Invited him to Paradise . . .
      Sarah N. Cleghorn
