Mercy Bourne

Broken bread

Broken bodies

Scarlet Red

Telling stories

Thorn in flesh

Betrayer among

Whom to address?

The poison stung

Chaos ensues

It cannot be

But God did choose

For Man’s liberty

Soldiers surround

Disciples are shocked

Must march up the mound

Endure being mocked

Could this cup be passed?

The anguish within

How long more could He last?

For the ravages of sin

Will death be the final nail

The tears that flow amidst the loss

Yet the plan will entail

Victory is won upon a cross

Matthew 27: 31-66
