You are the Christ

“You are the Christ”
Your name defines the timelines
Divine eponym
Before Abraham, You were
Yet You know me by my name

written in response to Silver Threading’s Word of the Week:

Eponym‘ is a noun: A person, real or imaginary, from whom something, as a tribe, nation, or place, takes or is said to take its name.

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.”
Matthew 16:15-17 (ESV)

London bus

The wheels on the bus go round and round,
round and round,
slowing down.
the wheels on the bus grind to a halt,
in London traffic

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish;
slosh, slosh, slosh,
swish, swish, swish,
the people on the bus go wish, wish, wish,
we weren’t in London

The horn on the bus go beep, beep, beep;
Beep, beep, beep,
BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!
because no-one’s getting anywhere,
in London traffic

The people on the bus go splutter, splutter, splutter
cough, cough cough,
feeling rough.
wish we were by the sea instead of stuck,
on this London bus
