The Baptist

A seeming madness freshly stirred.
His heart becomes inflamed,
his finger aimed
his voice untamed,
he roars the Holy Word .

Bereft the face of normalcy
he dwells beyond society
but aims his message back within,
at ruling king and Pharisee.

Deranged and ragged to the eye
But pure beneath the skin
A dancing girl would take his head,
in payment for her sin.

Isaiah 40:3-5
Luke 3:1-6

Nicely done. I like the high language that is accessible.
