The Cross

Some cross their fingers
or make a sign upon their head or breast
reducing what was gruesome
to something more or less
hung on fair and brawny necks
some fanciful piece to be desired
such rugged instrument was thought despised.
That which stood on darkened Calvary
an emblem of His pain
for fashion statement embossed in gold
now given in exchange.
Many ages have idolized it
corrupted beauty entertain
not realizing its heartless task
was to ensure men would be slain
this uncompromising executioner
found no common ground with victims
all pleas it did disdain
the only fame was sought
let nothing of life remain.
Therefore when in your heart
the cross you truly see
Jesus on that cross said finished
that meant you and me.
