YELLOW ALARM NO. 10

come to set things straight
with skill, a vision
from beyond, never intending
to become prophets forsaking
whatever home there was, whatever origin
extending far more than they’ll repay
is the price of justice

preparing to sacrifice far more than
knowing they’ll hate you before
permitting you to sojourn
where Christ’s blood won’t dry
never let them call you
one more hired hand
so freely
