Final Suppers
by Mandla Gobledale

The loaf is plentiful
I give and receive
I eat the bread

It is passionately red
Bitter as betrayal
I drink the wine

Prayer is uttered
Everyone is fed
I eat the bread

Everyone is offered
None refuse
I drink the wine

All are forgiven
None are abandoned
We eat the bread
We drink the wine
