It was on the Tuesday


It was on the Tuesday 
that he told stories
about the two sons
the wicked husbandmen
the marriage supper
the ten virgins 
and the talents.
He fielded questions,
batted them right back
to the Pharisees, the Sadducees
and that "certain lawyer"
He looked into the future
and predicted
that Jerusalem would be destroyed
and painted a picture
of the last judgement.
All in a day's work
for a man on a journey,
 a man whose friends
were dropping like flies
failing him at every turn.
And who can blame them?
Who wants to set themselves up
for public execution?
Best to get out now
as the stories gets stranger
and the teaching gets too near the bone.
That was on the Tuesday...
