why good friday: a poem

why is it called “good” 
when he died
lynched by an angry mob
why good
she asks all week
not able to comprehend
liturgical days 
that poke fun at empire 
and institutionalized violence 
this satire is sacred
why good 
because those with eyes to see
ears to hear
universal goodness 
wins out in the never end 
but for now
it doesn’t feel good
it should not 
so let the question linger
