My daughter only eats her crackers
When theyâ€™re whole as if it matters.
I tell her: â€œThey taste the same-
Theyâ€™re only broken and what remains.â€
But she persists in her prejudice.
Donâ€™t we do the same to those in front of us–
Whether theyâ€™ve missing legs, missing teeth,
Or broken parts we cannot see?
But Jesus came to doctor such as these,
Not the pious Pharisees like you and me.
