Poem based on Matthew 21:23-32 The Authority of Jesus Questioned

We had things all arranged
just the way we like them
and then you
who
you
do you think you are
by what authority do you speak
and change the way we had changed things?
Abraham had been given the promise
And we
Over time
Had whittled it down to something
We could live
Not them
With
We have said all along we would bring out the good news
We would gather in the nations
Beyond number
Beyond the sands of the desert
Beyond the stars in the heavens
We would bring them in
And include them
As soon
As they
Learn
To live, look, dress, talk, think
Like us
By what authority to you include
Them?
