The Cleansing

There were 12
plus the Savior
who would serve all present
with clean water and a towel

The Sons of Thunder and their mother
sought to be exalted
in a Kingdom for which they were unprepared
agreeing to drink from the chalice

The impetuous Rock said “never!”
until he understood the sanctity
yet still misunderstanding wanted more
he denied all understanding at the fire

The Twin was also there
cleansed by his Savior
seeing for himself
what he would later doubt

And the Betrayer
not denied the cleansing
from him who showed only love
he remained unclean unto death

The Savior taught for a while
loved all he encountered
accepted his own sacrifice
for all who are yet unclean
