Easter at Herod’s House

He stood on the balcony
and cast swine before pearls.
In the celebration of resurrection
he blathered about his kingdom.
Instead of lifting up the babies
he seemed oblivious to them.
Children chased the eggs.
He laid one claiming a child said,
“Please build the wall.”
He said, “Let the children at the
border suffer. Besides, they can’t
vote for me.”
Jesus said, “Suffer the little
children to come to me, for
to such belongs the Kingdom
of God.”
