They mocked him

They mocked him

beat him

hit his head

spat on him

took him to the place of the Skull

by 9 o’clock in the morning

he was hanging on a cross

rough wood under carpenter’s hands

iron nails driven through feet which walked the garden at the birth of creation

they mocked him

crucifying him as a bandit

they mocked him

throwing his words about rebuilding the temple

back at him

they mocked him

casting lots for his clothes

they mocked him

with the charge “King of the Jews” over the head

of the King of the Universe

leaving him to die
