RELIGION: A FEW QUESTIONS
I wonder at times how much it hurt
as the spikes were pounded in,
until flesh was firmly attached to wood.
How expert they must have been
to not hit the arteries during
this crucifixion of good
to take away the evil
from the multitudes of mankind.
I wonder at times if rising from the dead
and living on was worth the effort
of his pain and his mothers crying
as he hung there dying
seeing as what all have become,
even though as rumor has it God
allowed the sacrifice of his only son
to defeat a death
that must have been eternal
for death still rules
here in the realm mortal.
I wonder who the fool was, so indelicate
that termed us mankind
when mancruel is much more appropriate.
