Mark 14. 43-72
Harvey S. Mozolak

the bar of judgment
has not only a hammer
but the judicial bench four nails
and the court guards
a spear and sponge
the condemned carries
an innocent verdict to all the earth
holy order, order, order
pounded fist and feet
shackled in heart-drained blood
for the disordering
caused by sin
stripped of robe
flung far from heaven's train of galaxies
and withheld angel armies
we gamble at his weakness
he who clothes the fleeing naked
in fear of hatred and power
and the devoted who hold each other
against the terrors of this world
he forms into family by faith
beneath his execution...
of forgiveness
