April PAD Challenge: Day 22 “Judge Not”

I’m almost caught up with the April PAD Challenge. Yesterday’s prompt is “write a judging poem. This is a poem that could be judging others, or it is a poem being judged.”

I’ve had a lot of trouble with this prompt. This brief verse is the best I can do.

“Judge Not”

lest ye be judged.
Christ spake that, yet I doubt
it carried such British royal sting.
I wonder if James knew his translation
would so often be used for
condemnation. Despite Christ’s words.
