Given the headlines this weekend and the language used it is clear the story of Easter is right there before us (by the way, I know this is not very good):


We believe in 'u-turns'

along with 'denials'

in 'deficits' aplenty

and 'resignations' too


We believe in 'puzzles'

be they 'somewhat' or 'slight'

and 'disappointments' in heaps

from one side or other


We believe resurrection

is the ultimate U-turn

on the absolute certainty

of the way of death


We believe that denial

comes from a fear

that an empty tomb

might actually be true


and deficit is the result

of a crucified love

and will do it again

and again and again


and then resignation

is a state of being

when you lose all hope

and keep the doors locked


and disappointment is rife

among all who deny

the possibility of God

to transform all things


but here is the blessing

and here is good news

for those who are cynical

of all that goes on


being somewhat puzzled

is the start of faith

when the women proclaim

the stone has rolled
