Mary had a little lamb

then the priest he tried to snap its neck.
got five other men to have it on its back.
laid spreadeagled on the cold stone table.
 
Its hapless baa-ing touches no heart.
“oh Lord, bless us! Here, we have you an offering!”
“meayyyh…meayyyh…” sound Its last bleats
 
(even) the Lamb mocks your innocence, naivete,
(even) as the blade plunges down.
 
the blood is spilt, it spurts, it sprays, and spews and spews and spews
does God love you now?
 
dailywritingprompt- sacrifice
