SCAPEGOAT (Leviticus 16)

 


The goat that goes

to Azazel

bears burdens

not his own

sins he did not

commit


to a desolate mountain

on a cliff at the  edge

of nothingness


he languishes

with the anguish

of a multitude


God alone knows

what will become of him


"He will dwell on the heights;

His place of defence will be the fortresses of rocks;

his bread  will be given him, 

his water will be sure."

(Isaiah 33:16)
