The prosecutor speaks

After Romans 2:12-29

The prosecutor stands, casting
his voice at the accused,
those who know but don’t act,
those who believe but don’t do,
those who speak the right words,
make the right claims,
teach the right precepts,
espouse the right behavior,
boast in their belief but
do none of it,
break all of it.
The prosecutor casts his voice
and pronounces the crime
of uncircumcision,
the judgment of condemnation.

That's an amazing poem. And me not even a fan of poetry.
