Fissures

 

Written on (yet another) Good Friday

And the masses made a massive mistake

when they called for violence against one

and their leader, perhaps even feeling flattered,

superbly failed to lead.

This was no democratic move;

this was fear, collectively bargaining,

not for the execution of justice at last

but the extinction of a flesh and soul.

And this is not historically bound

but rather a timeless disaster

of ignorant people and helpless leaders

so are we learning today?
