Guardians of the Dead

They hurried to tell the news,

a tale of light and power and life,

to unbelieving believers

hardly daring to hope,

the well-known story

told by women to fishermen.

 

Others also reported the news,

with less haste and eagerness,

a tale of lightning and shaking and fear,

to believing unbelievers,

the lesser known story

told by soldiers quaking before priests.

These hearers

accepted the news without question

and responded with scheming,

burying

rich hope with money,

truth with lies,

and life with death.

Their report

continues to be widely circulated to this day.

 

But so does the other, better one.

 

Matthew 27:57-28:15
