Maranatha

Last year children died
in spurts of fire and blood
And we together mourned
The cruelty of the world
To have found and arrested
Them so young, not just
Arrested but destroyed.

I thought of Rachel weeping
Inconsolable for children
No more, and then of Hebrew infants
Cast into the Nile in desperate
Gestures of small panic.
To this violent opposition
Small Christ is borne from woman's womb.
