Troubled, by a debtor, and unable to sleep
He plotted for justice, with impatience grown deep
How quick he was to forget his own unpaid debt
And how, through mercy, they’d been paid by a man with depth
Even more, that he and his family had been to be sold
Along with their property no longer to hold
And now he would to not forgive a small loan?
The compassion he had known, was not further shown
In court the debtor asked for time and he would not budge
It was then that this troubled man came to be judged
For the man who had once paid off his enormous debt
Recalled the debt, and from everything he was swept
One who is guilty of a trespass or sin; a sinner.
