THE PHARISEES, ALWAYS THE PHARISEES

(In the light of Matthew 23)

Translated by: Испански: Стюарт Парк

Be first to rate

Shrill voices, wild exaggerations

sharpening their tongues, deliriums

demanding purity,

constantly harassing…

 

Voracious, like an army of ants,

they would even attack the Beloved One

who sprinkled on us

a nutricious drop

of joy

 

and a great measure of hope.

 

After their wild gesticulations,

in their fury

they will accept no peace.

 

They accept none but the monotonous chant

of the rachitic catechism

with which they have lulled them.

 

The Pharisees, always the Pharisees.
