    Lay your palms
    on the Jerusalem dust,
    at the feet of the animal carrying Him.
    Celebrate this moment.
    Sing out His name in praises.
    Hosanna,
    the son of David has come.

    Today
    He is the king of your hearts.
    He rides a donkey
    as scripture foretold.
    He has healed the blind
    and the lepers.
    He has opened the tomb
    of the dead Lazarus.

    Tomorrow
    doubt will take root
    and knowledge
    will inflict blindness on the sighted.
    You will reject the longing in your hearts.

    But for now
    you celebrate
    and dance in the street,
    children
    not yet abused
    by the minds of men.

    A fine capture of the crowd that cheered their long awaited King as promised, at the moment of the peak of their adulation, before a single thought of condemnation materialized. Well done, and I really enjoy the way you portray Scripture.
