The latest compilation of poetry by Irene Zimmerman Dec 6, 2004
Incarnation: New And Selected Poems For Spiritual Reflection is the latest compilation of poetry by Irene Zimmerman (a Catholic nun and poet-in-residence at St. Joseph Retreat in Bailey's Harbor, Wisconsin) who created her verse out of her study of and devotion to a deep and abiding love for God. Pontius Pilate At The Therapist: You say it could as easily have been/Barabbas' blood the rabble asked for--/that it was their leaders who incited them./But don't you see? That's it exactly, Sir!/The crowed called loud and clear for crucifixion./One has to pay attention to a people/who obey like that. You did precisely/what you had to do. Now win their leaders/loyalty and you've won the peace./Sometimes a man, innocent or not,/has to die to pay the price of it.//The man was innocent, you say?/But don't forget you washed your hands of him--/a little water cleared you of the deed./What a stroke of genius! Too bad/about your wife, though, washing her hands/a hundred times a day./No doubt in time/to come someone will make a play of it./Tell her what's done is done--/what's one life less as long as it's not hers./Perhaps you'd like to bring her too next time.//That's fifty denarii, please. Thank you, Sir.
