Good Friday 2008
The cacophony of sound erupted as the day began
People meandered into the souk ready to bargain
To enter the daily chores of this Passover willingly.
Jerusalem was heaving with the masses of pilgrims.
Whilst beneath the Pretorium a carpenter bled.
Above in the Temple the blood flowed river like.
So a few drops from a carpenter’s back made little difference.
Both actions were about religion, his one was banned
The Messianic hope was for tomorrow never for today
