X X X I I I A.D. - M M X V I A.D. - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)

The below Pentamorous Senryu poem is
written with the employment of the
required 5-7-5 Syllabic adherence
of Traditional Zen Haiku poetry.


__ XXXIII Anos Domini __

Thirty-Three A D,
A Man Was Nailed To A Cross,
Because He Gave Life,

And Spoke with Wisdom,
Which High Priests Deemed Blaspheme,
Because They Feared Him.

He Was Not Like Them,
Which Called For His Death By Cross;
Because He Refused-

To Worship As They,
And Deny His Fathers Word-
That He Be The Light.

One Hundred Scores Past,
Christian Boys Hung From Crosses;
Ice-Is in these veins.

__ MMXVI Anos Domini __
