Just Like

This post was written in 16 minutes.
This poem came out of thinking about the story of the rich young ruler in Mark 10, and Paul's words to the Roman church about the law of love, in Romans 13.

Just like a cart without a bridled horse,
Or like a violin without a bow,
As empty as a shell without a yolk,
As dismal as a winter without snow,
As empty as a dried up river bed,
As cold as hands without a warming glove,
So is a law-abiding citizen
Who still is lacking sacrificial love.
