People, Get Ready

 “It’s the day to prepare

we want no bodies there

when it’s time for the Sabbath to come.

Break their legs, pull them down

so they can’t run around.”

It was done to the ones who weren’t dead. 


With the thrust of a spear

one on duty made clear

there was no need to break any more.

It is written for you.

You can trust that it’s true. 

It fulfills what was written before.
