Son of Yahweh
Near mount Olives where an odious living
hill used to be
There he laid in the underground cave
His life was infused with the malevolent
hill such that they became one
Grounded into tiny specks and flushed
to his blood
A giant of a criminal he became
terrorising the whole land
For none can bear as he shook the
inhabitants with fear.
Oh happy days!
For the occupying foreigners have
Bound in shackles and kept behind bars
Night and day he shouted with vigor
in the prison
The sound and echo tore the unseen veil of
the prison whispering beautiful songs
to the Pharisees
Even the beasts have their moments of
lure etched in the far away stars.
Deliberations among the jury to discharge
the lesser of the two evils
Full votes in favour of the roaring beast
For beasts can be tamed or killed
But a preposterous notion being conveyed by a
human claiming to be a son of Yahweh cannot

powers, for they are the custodians of the
restricted access to Yahweh

The iron chains fell off from the ankles
and wrists of the beast

salivating at his freedom
So he wondered who the fall-guy was

being tightly tied with the iron chains
that he was released from
He knew the appearance of evil if he
This wasn’t it

Crucify him! Crucify him!! Crucify him!!!
The crowd bellowed with their might
Barabbas walked happy to be free yet greatly
disturbed and concerned for the innocent man
who had taken his place
Well, there are plenty more Romans to kill
But he couldn’t shake off the thoughts of
In him he sensed redemption for all the
people, and for him in particular
Perhaps he cried, and cried and cried.
For God has given us eternal life, and
this life is in His son, Jesus.
Come to Him today
