He was speaking about us

Matthew 22:33–46

What power is this,
to wield his words
as if a sword to slice
open armour of self-
righteousness, lay us bare
before ourselves and turn
our shields to mirrors
bearing images of ugly,
greedy, thugs of murder
unworthy of the vineyard
entrusted to our care;
and where is our humility
as we retreat to plot
another execution that will
not save us from ourselves?
