Son of Timaeus,
the son of Timaeus,
persistant faith like the
widow who dealt with a judge
that cared not what others thought!

Jesus of Nazareth,
Son of David freeing this
Bar Timaeus of the beggar's cup,
Sighting the Jerusalem way.
Congratulations poor!

But this son of David,
warrior on ass and foal of ass,
how could he be David's son
when David called him Lord,
Messiah without use of sword.

Jesus of Nazareth asks,
Jesus, Son of David asks,
Jesus, Lord of David asks,
"What do you want me to do for you?"
son of Man, your wisdom,
son of man, your courage,
son of man, your future.
