After Easter

Crying Eggs
Tears and treats
Sorrow and sweets

What a messed up story,
This spring festival
This remembracne of battle fought
And  victory won
This Hallmark Holiday,
marketing campaign and sales booster

Lord, Lord,
Awaken our hearts and ignite our spirits
That we would put to death all these
worthless things,
And see your everlasting glory
Displayed on a bloodied cross

You who scorned glitz
And shamed glam
You who embraced sorrow
And saved the human race

Amen
