Easter Sunday Conundrum

Posted on

I know that Easter Sunday falls on 4 April this year. But I couldn’t think of anything to write for today. Mind’s exhausted from too much pondering on historico-religious stuff (not to mention the beating it got from eProcurement the whole shift). So here’s a poem I wrote about a year ago…

José Mario Alas

As I watch
The Passion of the Christ
I eat vegetables for a change
During the part
Where the Son of Man
Was reduced to a bloody
Piece of mollified meat.
And then I begin to wonder:
How did God the Father above
Feel as He was watching His
Son scourged and beaten and

“Quid est veritas?”
Asked the consul.
I say:
The truth
Is in
The vegetables
That I eat.
