Lent 6 A

passionate palms

what is mine is yours
and vice versa
when need arises
privilege exits

the ass of me
becomes sign and symbol
of Hosanna living
donkeys appreciated

against this background
we wave our palms
and shout our hope

what is mine is mine
there will be no desertion
of individual responsibility
privilege exists

my crowing cock
reveals great bravado
for what it is
flustered and flopping

this visible detail
pains and bows
as we moan our fear
our passion

teaching and learning
backgrounds and foregrounds
confuse and reveal
passion and passionate
