Dispensable? - Poem by Richard Merrell

To believe a man is dispensable
Is Concentration Camp thought,
Therein is no mercy
For love has come to nought.
To believe a man is dispensable
Is Gas Chamber psychology
It is a wicked assumption that
Man is value free.
To fully typify this
That you might understand
'tis like a women's menstruation cloth
She casts away with her hand.

No man can be dispensable
When love is in your heart
'cause where love abides
Man's worth it will impart.

John 3: 16
