Dirty hands

After Mark 7:1-13

Your hands are dirty
but you eat anyway
it is not right
don’t you know to wash
your hands first to keep
tradition and rule

you use tradition
to avoid, to sidestep, to do
what you want to do
you justify it with a sneer
a condescension a judgement
you impose on others but not
yourselves tell me what is worse
dirty hands
or dirty hearts
