His eyes

After Matthew 21: 1-11

Why I noticed this
I’m not sure, but
amid the shouts
and songs and praises
and homage of thousands
lining the roads, I saw
his eyes, aware that
shouts and songs and
praises would soon
turn to condemnation
and demands for death.
He knew what was coming,
he knew the people
lining the road, he knew
their hearts, and he 
understood that his death
was the only payment
sufficient for the people.
