To Me

*****

The message of the holy texts
On this is very clear:
Every misfit character
At which you see fit to sneer

Every little waitress
Whom you choose to undertip
Every humble workman at whom
You have curled your lip

Every homeless beggar
You made a nonentity
Jesus told you plainly:
“You’re doing that to Me.”
