Best Poem of Doug Blair

Simon Of Cyrene

I could scarce believe my ears
As the Roman soldier said:
“You there, stranger, lift that cross,
Follow Jesus, good as dead.”

I had missed the troubled crowd,
Having just come into town.
Now I pressed beneath the load,
Joined to him who wore a crown.

All around humanity,
Yet my thoughts were fixed on him.
Why the back ripped to the bone?
Why the cruel and thorny brim?

How he struggled to ascend!
How he laboured for his breath!
Yet I sensed his body strove
T’ward the hill marked for his death.

It became a strange desire ...

Read the full of Simon Of Cyrene

Babe's Skin

All I could do

When others departed

Stop and consider

What just had been done

Look at my skin

[Hata Bildir]
