The sword cuts a deep gash in bloody flesh,
The holy curtain from top to bottom
on the Temple mount
Two temples purposely damaged,
A Roman cross and the Holy of Holies change places
as God startles the planet.
Last deep breath of the Nazareth teacher
from a criminal’s planks
breathes life to the world.
A seasoned soldier, wearied by death,
sees, hears a human’s cry like no other,
declaring on the spot his disloyalty
What a dangerous world with God roaming free!
