Gasping For Air On The Cross For Days

Sometimes you would
die by blood loss,
if your earlier beatings
had been severe
enough, but usually
a person died by
suffocation.

Depending on
what physical
shape you were in,
you might hang
on a cross for days,
gasping for air.


If your death took
that long, eventually
a soldier would break
your shins.

You would no longer
have the ability to
push yourself up
to breathe, so you'd
die more quickly.
