The good Samaritan I

After Luke 10:25-37

So why a story,
why this story
of a man robbed,
a man beaten,
a man left for dead,
a man ignored,
a man left for dead because
he should be
that’s what he deserves,
a man embraced by the half-breed,
the sinfully stained from birth,
the one beneath contempt

why the story
why this story

The knowledge of love
its definition
the proper wording
the correct precedents
and etiology, all this
means nothing
unless the knowledge
becomes a deed
becomes an act
becomes an action
becomes a way of living.
