Digesting Hypocrisy

His flock was really but a few
When incarnated as a man like me and you
But he had faith in his Father up above
As he taught us to defeat our enemies with love

He suggested we turn the other cheek
And reap the reward from the strength of being meek
There are many who say they’ve heard his word
Yet clamor to arm themselves with weapons – how absurd

Seems they relish amendments written by mortal men
More than the commandments he died trying to defend
So please, stop trying to convince me
I have trouble digesting hypocrisy
