palm sunday

Klaus J. Gerken

the palms of my hands are sweaty
i’m riding into town
hosannah to the highest
i’m here to claim the crown

they hail me as messiah
but that’s not who i am
david is my bloodline
and i am just a man

but no one understands me
they want a daily cure
for whatever they think ails them
and makes them so cock-sure

that i can give them reason
to latch on to the lure
