feet are not required to follow

Feet are not required to follow Jesus.
Who needs feet when you have knees to pray or crawl?
And who needs feet to hang?

If you have feet,
let them rest on a Roman cross
or dangle below a Southern rope.

Following only takes enough breath to die.
The words “not my will” can be spoken in half-a-sec,
thought in a millionth.

Beginning is a moment,
following takes a lifetime,
crucifixion commences with a spike strike
and ends as a slow death
with a labored mantra
of varied language.
