Prompt: Any, Any, "Have you ever seen a picture of Jesus laughing. Wouldn't you think he'd have a beautiful smile." (Kate Bush)


the cup does not pass from him

he dies on the cross

he rests behind a stone

(he's screaming in Hell and the devil laughs)

he rises on the third day

and greets the sun

a brother to a brother

(welcome the bright star says welcome)

he tells the women and the men

some believe and some don't

as was meant to be

(always always my child your destiny)

the doubting one believes now

and blood is spilt

oceans and oceans of innocence and seas and seas of guilt

(in my name in my name in my name always in my name)

and he greets the sun

brothers and brothers and sisters and sisters

sons and daughters children of my father

(he knows all their histories and all their names)

and the story will end happily

when it ends

when the Son rises on the third day

(and they all hope to see his smile)
