At A Desert Place With Misunderstanding, 2

Egypt's, and Rome's great ones are deified

by popular acclaim when they have died

(by natural cause, murder, or suicide).

Bu then they are interred---grand tomb, plain sod---

remembered only by some statuary.

Some think the whole custom is rather odd.

But we have met someone extraordinary:

our man came into this wolrd as a god

already.  Crown him expeditiously

so we can take our place immediately---

a major kingdom with full sovereignty.

That which imperial Caesar claims and seizes

will be restored to us whenever Jesus

gives the command, and any time he pleases.
