Seventy Years After (Luke 21:6)

Ruins,
whether it be by the will of
Nebuchadnezzar
or Titus,
no stone
lies on another.

The spirit is crushed
and the body crumbles.
He warned us
before we mocked Him,
drove cold nails
through His hands.

Why was the warning
not heeded?
A million have died
by the sword
or famine,
and a tenth more
are slaves unto slaughter.

Ruins,
the people
led out of Egypt,
purged
from the land promised.
Soil given
now taken,
offered to the gentiles
seeking to worship
a homeless preacher.
