Experiment 11

Love for the loveless

page 430

Love for the loveless

"Away with you, you bastard!"I screamed
As the crabbed eunuch hustled off
With a sensuous leer on his sexless face,
And a burden of hate in his emasculated brain.

Who was then more warped, he or I?
For I was frustrated by distortion and distorted by frustration.
But I have changed.
I now sing the praises of others,
The weak, the ugly, the helpless, the crabbed eunuch
And the painted prostitute:
All these I love as Christ did
As he has given me power.
