That is That!

van Diepenbeeck, Abraham Jansz.; The Crucifixion; The Fitzwilliam Museum;

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!”
