Without food, fire, or clothing to warm them;
And not like the Priest or the Levite pass by,
But Samaritan like stop and cheer them.

He trod the sacred temple’s inner floors;

Yet none in their kindness his deep wants relieved:

With cold-like indifference to the bereav'd.

Over the scalding, red topography

Law is holy; but not your law, ye who keep the tablets whole
While ye dash the Law to pieces, shatter it in life and soul;
Bearing up the Ark is lightsome, golden Apis hid within,
While we Levites share the offerings, richer by the people's sin.
"Anti-Apis" by James Russell Lowell
