Just deserts

Help me to be humble
Even as you are humble

Didn't you deserve a mansion not a stable
Didn't you deserve a stallion not a donkey
Didn't you deserve loyalty rather then betrayal
Didn't you deserve a king-sized bed rather than a stone to put your head

And yet you chose to be one of us
To laugh and feast,
To weep and wait
To live and die, to rise again

Not a deserved life but a served one.

Help me to live like you
Help me to serve as you deserve
