The Flying V!

 
  
 The Flying V
  
 It flies, zooms
 Moving so fast
 At first I cannot see
 What this flying
 Abstraction, monstrosity
 Must be
 It is a flying V!
  
 It moves, zips
 With so much speed
 I cannot see
 Its shape
 So I reach an arm
 Upward
 To reach for its tip
  
 At firsts it eludes
 But I continue to
 Pursue
 Until I reach 
 Triumphant
 Into the air
 Then turn to stare
  
 At what lies 
 Trembling
 Within my hands
 It is the letter 
 V
 Well, this was not
 Within my day’s plan!
  
 Never would I have guessed
 If I had been put to the test
 That such a symbol
 Would belong
 To such as I
 What could this mean
 Then I too began to tremble
  
 Until a hand
 Reached from behind
 It is for you a sign
 A man smiled
 As he spoke
 Do you not see
 What this flying V
 Stands for?
  
 I shook my head 
 No.
 As He spoke His
 Words were slow
 Listen carefully
 He said
 And I will show
 Its meaning
  
 He removed His robe
 His body was scarred
 His perfect flesh 
 Had been deeply marred
 Yes, my flesh was
 Defaced
 I died in disgrace
 For you
  
 Yet within my nail-scarred
 Hands
 I hold the Promised Land
 Waiting for you
 It takes a deep belief
 Faith in me
 This is for your
 Most sincere relief
  
 From your own
 Sin
 No more will it win
 Control
 I destroyed that 
 Darkness 
 The hold
 It had on you
  
 This V is a sign
 Of my complete
 Victory
 Over all that enslaved
 Each child of mine
 I saved the day
 No more will hell
 Or death have its way
 With you
  
 As I watched
 His arms He raised
 In that perfect stance
 Of old
 It took only one glance
 For me to know
 Over His head
 His arms they formed that
 Perfect V
 On display
 For everyone forever
 & always to see!!
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
 And I could see
 Of that which
 He spoke
 He had removed
 Destroyed
 That darkest of yokes
 My sin
