Stealing Words from the Bible

Extoling the virtues of humanity

I will pull the mote out of your eye

Let light fall on the lanterns of your face

And seat the question, “Do you know why?”


In particles of the atmosphere

And out of thine own eye,

The beam holding up the door of your face

And the turnaround to the question, “Why?”

    1. I didn’t take the whole thing from the bible, but that sounds like a good idea. I used the bits about the beam and the mote in this line: “Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?”
