#PoemADay No.55: Good Friday


I used to wonder
what could have been good
about the death of God?

How infinitely wretched must we have been
to require the
greatest sacrifice
to cleanse our sins?

Then I heard God say,
don't fret, issa win-win.

‘Cause as you can see,
I am clearly not dead.
So consider this act my Valentine's gift
to you, 
because on Sunday,
the prince of this world will be the one revealed
as the April fool.
