Hail, Son of David!

Haiku for a grand entrance.

Jesus, the failed king
entering Jerusalem
riding a donkey.

The crowd goes crazy
greeting their king. Days later
they will turn on him.

Yet his words brought hope,
the promise of God’s friendship.
Memories are short.

Hail, Son of David!
riding on your borrowed colt,
in your borrowed time.
