Gene Stecher


A big time banquet
for producers of debt
and for producers of sin.
Pharisaical scribes,
the righteous ones,
conduct a disciple probe,
Only to be told that
mercy is admirable
compared to sacrifices.
The path of self-destruction
produces those chosen
to be healers of the sick.
While the admirers of
of law and sacrifice

self-heal with great zeal.
