Good Friday

Crucify Him!

There were some there

who could not figure out

why he was so despised

rejected by his own people

forsaken by those he loved

There were some there

who flinched when he was wounded

who wept through his suffering

who were crushed as he was crushed

by the sheer mass of the hate

There were some there

who realized he was reciting a hymn

“My God, My God,

why have you forsaken me?”

and who knew he was praying for them

There were some there

Who were not swept away

By the emotion of the rally

Who did not shout “Crucify him!”

Who could resist the mob

There were some there

but not many

not enough

not nearly enough

not even here, now
