A Short Conversation between Two Men on Palm Sunday during Christ’s Ride into Jerusalem on the Donkey

A donkey’s hair is coarse,
He should’a rode a horse.

No, horses are for war,
For killing by the score.

An’ ridin’ home to cheers,
For honor and our fears.

Donkeys are for peace,
For wars and hate to cease.

An’ haulin’ down the road
Another person’s load.

He’s on the fitter beast,
A fighter non-the-least.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
