Poem: Asking questions

When the crowd of followers asked John,
‘what should we do?’
they knew the answer before he gave it.
‘Caring means sharing,
not keeping everything as personal property.
Give some of it away.’

When the tax collectors asked John,
‘what should we do?’
they also knew the answer to their own question.
‘Don’t collect more than is due.
Stop your extortion rackets
and just do your legitimate business.’
