Holy Monday (Mark 11:12-25)

just because your
corn flakes were
a little stale,
did you have to
take it out on
that fig tree?

and golly,
isn't free enterprise
all about letting
the small business
owners set up shop
where the customers
are (or don't you
see yourself as a
job creator)?

isn't 'just have faith'
a bit of a platitude,
something we don't
usually hear coming from
your lips?

'maybe you shoulda
stayed stayed in bed,'
i muttered to myself
as the hours wore on . . .

I noticed your eyes
continually glancing up
toward the hills
outside the city,
as if you
had an appointment
with one of them
and didn't want
to be
