Lazarus Unseen

Lazarus unseen except by dogs
with oozing sores and crippled legs,
how long did he lie at the gate
before someone noticed
that he had died?

When he was naked
we lounged in linen.
When he moaned in hunger
begging for mere scraps of food,
we asked security to turn him out.

“Let God take care of him,” we said,
“as God has blessed and cared for us.”

(Luke 16:19 - 31)
