each tick closer….

Guilty! Guilty!                                                 

the Pharisees

raised voices, clenched fists

nous accuse 

blind to their sins

denying prophecies past

espousing agendas, fears, 

sending Him to the cross

yet

premeditated 

one cog in time

each a tick closer

Guilty! Guilty!

human am I

guilty of sin

yet

Salvation

grace through acceptance

of Him

vous accuse

lumped into “we”

born in love 

born in a Christian home

no sin in His plan

vous accuse

am I my brother’s keeper?

the sins of my father

my grandfather

generations 

recognized

bid overcome

offensif

New Covenant

God will deal with me 

on the merits 

of my thoughts, words, deeds

yet

premeditated 

one cog in time

each a tick closer

nous accuse
