How did we get here ?

At the Passover table.

How did we get here ?
At table behind closed doors;
hell stirring up a storm at our gates,
history changing with the wine
and the blessing of the cup.

How did we get here ?
Sharing bread and argument
clean feet but dirty hands,
history disclosed -
the matzos and Messiah revealed.

Where do we go from here ?
Evening air hangs heavy
pregnant with tears and blood.
With the coming of dawn
begins the assault.

Dunno how you do it, Keith? Always a powerful one for Easter, and this one's no exception - well done, sir!
