You just said that to Jesus

Such coarseness of dialogue
in this modern age, thoughtless,
needing a filter, a pause button,
to ponder Christ’s teaching
this lesson for the sheep

How would the world be different,
would there be greater peace?
maybe we all need a five-second delay
before any of us speak

You just said that to Jesus
the living Son of God;
He is standing before you
as a friend, a neighbor
someone we feel entitled to judge

How do you know, that you didn’t,
from reading this scripture;
maybe you should remember
that He is here with us.
