+ 27.225 MHz 038: Quatrain In Long Lines For This Year's Good Friday

Of course the devil did not celebrate Jesus' death on the cross:
that sacrifice of God's Lamb caused the devil full and total loss

of temporary dominance in our polluted air---

since two adolescents in Eden accepted the serpent's dare.

As time flows toward Rapture, the devil's delights are passing

downward from temporary triumphs to aggravations---cheap harassing.

At Easter, Christ, Son of God, and His Word, rose, living, from the dead:
and since that morning, the devil no longer can ask us, "Hath God said?"



Author's Notes/Comments: 

The last line is derived from the serpent's questionin Genesis 3.
