BENEFITS FORGOTTEN

 

Mortal - the ungrateful wretch,

Taking all things as one's due

Inflated with incurable pride

Fell-ingrate - unaware

That oblivion is a deadly crime

Frightful knave - unknowing

Of the treasure of docile ape

Of the treasure of docility

And fitting teachability

Crocked with the pursuit

Of lechery and pleasure

With infected mind and defiled hands

Enslaver of darkness

Embracer of vice

Against the disarming

And soothing Light,

Unguided by the deathless wealth

Of meekness and innocence stays unlearnt,

A stranger to the vastness of debt

And unbounded fire of the Cross,

Deaf to fidelity and care

Lavishly given from the abode

Of the Author of Love...

Even wild animals can be tamed and settled

in exchange for help or sustenance.
