Palms & Passion

Hosannas feel complete
until 'Crucify Him' exits our mouths
in the immediate,
the visceral satisfaction
of vindictive revenge
feels good to our retribution

Crucify Him we quickly cry.
after shouts of Hosanna (save us)
... crucify him ~ the wrongs we feel
cry out for justice ~
even if he is a lamb
riding a donkey (an ass)
crucify him, so maybe you won't
crucify me -
maybe his death can save me from death

if only we knew how close
'Hosanna/Save Us'
is to
'Crucify Him'

If only we knew how
his crucifixion
would bring
our salvation
