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


To Mr. Svend Robinson (again)
