René Girard’s Moment

Don’t look too hard
Don’t try to see
What people hide
Or what they don’t
Their looks, their talk,
Won’t tell you anything.

The least you do
Should be to run
From all that they desire.
Their demons could be yours
Their follies your death knell.

But this you must
Take care to do
Give all you can to them
Of good that has been given you
By immortal hands in heaven.
Then you’ll see just enough
With no harm to you.


Verse written while reading René Girard’s I See Satan Fall Like Lightning.
