Luke 7: 1-10

that story, you know,
about the saviour
and the soldier
and the sick servant

you know, that story
about authority
and humility
and credulity

that story that old Luke
tells so well
about what hell
it is to dwell
with loved ones suffering
and the futility
of demands,
and forcing hands

don’t you know that story?

If you don’t have time
to read the whole thing through
then at least watch the movie,
preferably in the mirror.
