Well written poem about John the Baptist. I really liked the first three lines of the last stanza.

Of all the people in the Bible, John the Baptist is probably one of the most outlandish! This captures the heart and purpose of JTB concisely and clearly. I, too, especially love the last stanza, but enjoyed the entire poem. Well done.
Thank you. Well done.

some great lines here and certainly John the Baptist is a great choice for outlandish :)to be picky and because you have invited comments i did find that some of the rhyming and rhythm of your fourth lines in a few stanzas a little forced.
'His words fast and fiery flung free' this one was a bit of a tongue twister and did not roll of the mouth like honey!
as a poet myself i know ho hard it is to get the rhymes in at times.
i agree that the last couple of lines are a perfect summing up of the whole poem.
