I would die for a good man

After Romans 5:6-11

I would die for a good man
for sure, I think, or so I tell myself,
I guess I would, maybe,
a good person accused unfairly or
plotted against or betrayed or treated
unjustly. I would do that, I think,
surely we would do that.

But to die for an evil man? A murderer.
a thief, a rapist, a child abuser,
a wife beater, a terrorist, or even worse,
someone who votes differently? Would
I die for any of them, any of those people?
I think not.
I think not.
But he did.
