2018 Sonnet 54

“Love one another.” That’s what Jesus said.
Can I still be Christian if I don’t?
“Have you visited, welcomed, clothed and fed
the least of these?” If not, He said, you won’t

Be welcomed into the Father’s kingdom.
You won’t be walking through the Pearly Gates.
The king Himself will say that you aren’t welcome
To dwell where all is love and none is hate.

Who said that? Well, I’m glad it wasn’t me.
I don’t know how to divvy sheep from goat.
Nor is it my decision. All are free
To pick a side. That’s also what He wrote.

The Shepherd’s field has wolves, and goats, and sheep.
We hear His voice. It makes it hard to sleep.
