what is truth?

things are moving too fast
can we not stop this dissonant parade?

passover dinner to garden to prayer
and in a sleepy fog they came, we fought
over him and thought not much in a torchlit
terror-filled garden

to Annas to Caiaphas to Pilate we cannot
keep straight where they have taken him
but he is moving, always moving, they are
moving him and striking him and asking
ever more questions that have no fair answer

questions that lead to one conclusion
a painful one a shouting crowd
the kingdom of something certainly
not the one we were looking for

what is truth?

Inspired by the passion story 
according to the Gospel of John
Holy Week 2013
