The Destruction of Death  
  DEATH that merciless violator of hope!
 
Sucking life from air-starved lungs; crushing, bruising, breaking;
denying the very function of every part! Obliterating life!
How  the nations fear you!
  A thousand thoughts flicker and die as the stuttering pulse fails,
   and one by one each body function denies its own existence.
       Pale veins, numb nerves, stiffened sinew, all agree to make nothing of something
UNTIL   THE   CHRIST   CAME
  Violating the Violator!
  He did not turn back its ravages, or reverse its cruel deeds.
Instead
 –
  from within the moment of putrefaction,
He pressed forward, onward, upward, breaking new,
beyond the limits of functional design,
for all those who follow Him
forever . . .
Hallelujah!
