Today you walked toward me on the street,
Unshaven without shoes, some homeless guy.
We were so close we could not help but meet,
But I turned down my eyes and passed you by.
I went inside a restaurant for lunch
And there you were, a woman with her kids.
You shared a piece of toast and one fruit punch,
But I ignored you all with squinted lids.
You were a man I worked with ev’ry day,
Someone I barely noticed but to yak.
You went to prison wrongly, so they say,
And asked for help but I did not call back.
A thousand times we met upon life’s breeze,
But I refused to help the least of these.
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat:
I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in:
naked, and ye clothed me not:
sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.”
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,
“Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger,
or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?”
45 Then shall he answer them, saying,
“Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these,
ye did it not to me.”
Matthew 25:42-45 KJV
