 Slaughtered Lambs BBW94DC Sunday.jpg

Easter bunnies
             and little lambs
compliment this Holy Day,
but this morning, headlines,
            "Hundreds Dead
             or Injured in Sri Lanka"
mock it.

Toppled Easter Lillys,
a broken statue of Our Lady,
littered sanctuary,
earlier, a priest
lay bloodied and unconscious
while in the wooden pews
found mangled and lifeless.
A bomb blast
ravaged Easter service.

The sense of it
makes no sense,
targets of hate,
religious zeal,
or political upheaval,
none of it good enough
for the death
             of one lamb.
