[Raphael, 1516–1517. Christ Carrying the Cross;

CRUCIFY HIM
Tag him hustler, for soul's ransom
Label him scammer, for healings done
Seize him
Nail him to a tree awaiting

As for Barabbas the prisoner, free him
For wishes of mob must we accrue
Then in a tomb stash away folly
For such as is the mark of history

Now for limitless celebration
As a bridge we shall sell to angels.
