In the grave

March 22nd, 2008

All our hope went with him.
Israel will never be free.
Her Messiah has not come.
Or can God’s Anointed be killed?

In the grave

No king will refound David’s line–
a succession of lousy Herods instead.
Why would God allow such knaves at the top,
when this one was perfect?

We never knew anyone more right or good or sane.
The powers always win.
The bastards always have their way.
There is nothing good that lasts.

What will become of us?
He said this would happen.
We left him to his fate;
It’s unforgivable,
this shame will never go away.

He is gone.
What will become of us?
