Not yet time

John 8:20
He spoke these words while he was teaching in the treasury of the temple, but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.

His hour had not yet come
But the forces were gathering
His hour had not yet come
But his fate was pretty much sealed
His hour had not yet come
But the damage had been done
His hour had not yet come
But his plain speaking
and subversive action
had riled enough of the powerful
They would not hold off much longer
before they would attempt
to extinguish
The Light of the World.
But
His hour had not yet come.
And so, for a while yet
he would continue
by his love in action
and by his
living in the margins
to noise up
those in authority
the religious zealots
and the occupying forces
until they were forced to act
aiding and betting one another
united in their desire
to snuff out
the peacemaker
who cared for the poor.
His hour had not yet come.
