“Broken Hallelujahs” by Keith Wallis of Wordsculptures

 Broken Hallelujahs*
Broken hallelujahs;
caustic calls of crucify,
the hill christens the dying.
Broken hallelujahs;
thorny prince
with piercing crown.
Broken hallelujahs;
tears, blood, pain
and the shock of nail.
Broken hallelujahs;
at the dawn of eternity
the flag of death is hoisted.
Broken hallelujahs;
eyes close who cannot stare
God shuts out the light.
Broken hallelujahs;
only the tunic relies
on the turn of a dice.
