Killing Jesus

In this fabled prediction
of Jesus’s crucifixion,
he learned of his addiction
and brought to fruition

the shame of the Pharisees,
jealousy in the Sadducees,
the terms of the prophecies,
and miracles to those who seek

him out for his divinity. 
Their love approaches infinity.
Jesus has a special affinity
for making new enemies. 

Now fast forward to Passover,
where he pisses off the high-rollers.
They plot his fall, a covert
op, in order to recover

their loss of power. 
In the end, Jesus will tower 
above on the Holy Cross,
but his teachings were not lost.
