Magpie Tales 211: Simon Says


Feast in the House of Simon, 1610, El Greco via Magpie Tales

In my house at meat
Cure upon me, yet
I am the example
to be made of forgiveness,
by you, son of God?

Outcast I was, perfume I have not
Let the question reverse itself
Thankful to keep my limbs
But without perfume or hair as rags
You damn me with faint praise

Don't suffer your crimes
Let the love in your heart take control..."
