Around That Crucifixion Cross
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Quentin Clingerman

Around that crucifixion Cross
Stood a motley crew
Hardened soldiers from afar
Looked on with scorn
Except one

Around that crucifixion Cross
Stood scoffers rude
Taunts and jeers were their sympathy
Looked on in derision
In arrogant disdain

Around that crucifixion Cross
Stood family
Mother with sorrow pierced heart
Perhaps brothers and sisters too
In disconsolate grief

Around that crucifcxion Cross
Stood forlorn friends
Bewildered, confused, devastated
In silent disbelief
A courageous few

Around that crucifixion Cross
With which group would you identify?
With which group would you indentify?

Around That Crucifixion Cross (c) 2001 Quentin Clingerman
