And We Are a Spectacle



And we are a spectacle
Coming last in the triumph
Of godless land-grabbers.
We wear animal skins
And sad countenance
While crowds on either side
Laugh and jeer.
“He trusted”, they say.
“She swore by her God.
Hah, God on this carnival day!”
And the music grates the senses
And the clowns’ grotesque smiles
Reek of perversion.
While we cry
Remembering Via Dolorosa
And the short-lived
Shame of our King.
He had it in Him
To despise the shame;
To look beyond
And climb the stairs
Of noble destiny.
So shall we.
Even now the costumes of contempt
Are dropping off
The fetters loosen.
Some from the sidelines
Even join our Cause.
And the King is surely up ahead.
Hallelujah.
