Avaloniad, 2: At The Sanhedrin's Chamber In Jerusalem

[after Acts 8:2]


Not so much that he preached real heresy
of that "Messiah" who came from Galilee;

but that he lectured us on History
(and so much detail):  too much of the past

and no respect for this divided present.
Of course our frenzy was rather unpleasant.

I sure was glad when we began to cast
the stones at him, and finished rapidly.

You know he even dared, that day, to speak
before us in that highbrow, pagan Greek?
