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?”
