The Elites in the Crowd by Raymond A. Foss

Not the common people
the ones who had cried Hosannah
who had laid their cloaks, the palms
when he had entered in

The leaders, the priests
the elites in the crowd
the mob in that courtyard
in that unholy seat of power

Calling for Christ to die
holding onto their power
silencing this voice
this thorn in their side

Pilate in judgment
unwilling to stand up
giving them Barabbas
putting Christ to death
