To: Mr. Svend Robinson (again)

 

I must admit I admired you yesterday

not many would have your courage

to make so large an admission so publicly

I appreciate your honesty and forthrightness

and today cannot condemn you

I have no stone to throw

wishing to say as fellow fallen man

medicine is not the answer

 

never has been

never will be

 

the Answer died on a cross centuries ago

taking our punishment in our place

rising again

giving us hope that the payment applies

 

I pray

as a man who also falls

that you as well can know His grace
