their shouts became cries

their shouts became cries
the climate changing;
the joy of Palm Sunday
became their cries of Good Friday.

their shouts of “Hosanna!”
of the triumphal entrance
the Messiah entering Jerusalem
before the Passover.

their cries of “Crucify Him!”
echoing on that Friday
the judgment on the people
resounding off the Stone Pavement.

their shouts of joy
became their cries of anger
the Messiah before them;
but they would not believe.
