An Iota
An Ode to Human Society
by Father Jerome

Would you feed your neighbor,
Or would you kill your neighbor,
If neither one would make an
iota of difference in the world?

Would you house your neighbor,
Or would you kill your neighbor,
If neither one would make an
iota of difference in the world?

Would you help your neighbor,
In his/her need,
Or would you kill your neighbor,
If neither one would make an
iota of difference in the world?

Would you love your neighbor,
Or would you kill your neighbor,
If neither one would make an
iota of difference in the world?

Would you celebrate your neighbor,
Or would you kill your neighbor,
If neither one would make an
iota of difference in the world?

Would you cherish your neighbor,
Or would you kill your neighbor,
If neither one would make an
iota of difference in the world?

Would you accept your neighbor,
Or would you kill your neighbor,
If neither one would make an
iota of difference in the world?

Would you respect your neighbor,
Or would you kill your neighbor,
If neither one would make an
iota of difference in the world?

Would you acknowledge your neighbor,
Or would you kill your neighbor,
If neither one would make an
iota of difference in the world?

Would you BE your neighbor,
And walk a mile in his/her shoes,
No matter whether it made
A difference or not?

Or, more so yet,
would you kill
your neighbor,
For what is his/hers?

And remember: If we have
wronged our neighbor in any way,
Or we have not righted our neighbor,
In any of the aforenoted ways -
Then it is the same......
As having killed
our neighbor, in Spirit!

Because some day, it will
make a difference,
As to which of the foregoing
we have chosen.

Let Peace, Love,
and an Iota
of His image in us,
Show us the Way!

Aum, Peace, Amen!
Jerome
