Poem describing biblical thief/murderer, Lighthouse poetry contest
Barabbas: murderer, thief, insurrectionist
Harbinger of grief, death, injustice
Provider of cruelty, dissent, and bloodshed
Barabbas, master of violence and treachery
Alas, my savior did die for thee

Barabbas: degenerate, foe, tyrant
Wretched, corrupt, belligerent
Perhaps withheld, opposed, defiant
Barabbas, condemned, wanton and guilty
Alas, my savior did die for thee

Barabbas: tormenter, liar, cheat
Fouled soul, beyond all reach
To Hell, he must be impeached
Barabbas, withheld from grace and mercy
Alas, my savior did die for thee

Barabbas: accused, exposed, sinner
Eyes opened, realized, as in a mirror
Selfish, immoral, without virtue
Thyself, dead, lost in depravity
Alas, my savior did die for thee
