A Very Different Parade

No cries of hosanna
no hail to the king
palm boughs not waving
no sound of singing
greeting the Lord

Shouts and jeers
“crucify him,” “blasphemy”
when he spoke the truth
The crowds now taunting him
when he carried the cross to the skull

Angry and confused
the people as Christ walked by
the struggle to carry the cross palpable
going to be crucified
on this day that Jesus died
