Carrying his own cross, which had been supplied,
to Golgotha: Skull hill, he was crucified.
Other folks attended, two to be killed, too,
Saw the signs as posted, saying who was who.
Some of them objected to the wording there;
didn’t like the title that the judge declared.
Ti-red of their picking; getting his own back.
Pilate answered calmly, “Take it. That is that!”
