Palm Sunday Redux

why is it always Palm Sunday falling apart
hosannas giving way to jeers
and all the hidden tears

so many years after you oh Christ
I wonder through the dark nights
of so many souls

why is happiness so often blossoming like a blighted rose
do you know
you who were the Rose fore destined

torn petal by petal from the stem
while the scribes said
whoever heard of Him
