You’re our hero The poor and impoverished Captive starving millions Cry Tears of anguish Tears of dread The cost of their Hero’s burial Is too their debt Their sacrifice The living for their leader The hungry little ones Cry The world watches on In fear My Hero gave it all His life A willing sacrifice His perfect life His perfect love His cost Our hatred That we might live His excruciating death Has not left us comfortless And soon to be Our resurrection of renewal We the loyal few weep for what we did His life for ours The rest rejoice because you died The world now looks on In fear ©?

This poem is one to read over and over. It is clear and for me, beautiful in its necessary ambivalence. Thank you for sharing...Many wishes, Kai
