The Centurion Resigns - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

The centurion turned in his resignation.
He will not work for such an Evil reign.
Everyone is fearful of the King’s retaliation.

Calling on Jehovah God to stop the atrocity.
Expecting angels above to stand against it.
Not wanting to do his duty but is compelled to.
Torturous pain is seen in the Master’s eyes.
Understanding not man’s inhumanity to man.
Righteous indignation sickens him to his core.
In His cry did He really ask God to forgive us?
On His last breath He whispered “I forgive you! ”
Never again will I participate in such demonic activity!

Rise from His tomb three days later, I hope it’s so!
Eternity awaits for all who believe, even Me?
Satan does not know just how badly he is defeated.
I am now and forever more a changed man.
GOD the Father turned His face on His Only Son?
Never believing that He would not rise again.
Severing for all times any connection to that serpent.
