for Pilate to be so frightened of riots
of an uprising
he would order the tomb sealed and a guard placed in duty before it
what about the other two who were crucified on that hill?
Was Jesus such a threat?
To the power of Rome
to the powers of the world?
who cried in anguish and pain
“My God, my God, why have you abandoned me.”
who was abandoned, too, by most of his followers
except the women
and Joseph of Arimathea
how was Jesus such a threat to the powers of the world
when he was so, so abandoned
dead and buried
