A meditation on agony and the pain of the world, relating it to Good Friday.

First published in Nothing Too Religious (Andrew Pratt/Marjorie Dobson) - Click Here


Agony etched on faces.
Pain screaming from tortured limbs.
Blood running from open wounds, mingling with sweat, diluted by tears.
Victims dying.
Soldiers doing their duty.
Enemies looking on with hatred blazing.
Mothers weeping inconsolably.
Friends standing, lost and helpless, at a distance.

No solution.
Only the tearing last breath as death puts an end to it all.
