The Lamb of God

Lamb of God

(Painting: Lamb by Francisco Zurbarán)1

The sounds of Passover
fill the streets with
desperate bleating
as all the animals
must be dragged
to play their
sacrificial roles.

All, that is, save one
who goes quietly
with determination,
strength, and purpose.

Lamb of God
have mercy on me.
