Gabbatha

When people’s cry rendered the air
Wife’s dream fell by the way
And to please the whitewashed sepulchers
The governor invited Golgotha to Gabbatha

Gabbatha

By Joe Palathunkal
When Pilate sat on the Gabbatha
A veil of law covered his eyes
And turned out to be man was made for the Sabbath;
Truth walked away with a scowl,
The stony seat gave out a howl
Like that of a night bird owl
To scare the etiolated figure
Who stood gazing him with valour
Who came from the truth to testify to the truth!
When people’s cry rendered the air
Wife’s dream fell by the way
And to please the whitewashed sepulchers
The governor invited Golgotha to Gabbatha
To hand over the son of man
To the vultures that feed on the dead
Little knowing that
The one who stood before him was life itself
And Gabbatha can never condemn him
To death’s pernicious world
For, he had come to give life in abundance
And the Gabbathas all over the world
Wrote the epitaph of the son of man
By being blind to his agony in Gethsemane!
