She woke, terror lying on her like a dead man.
“Don’t have anything to do with that righteous man!”

 

Pilate had him beaten and the soldiers mocked him.
“Don’t have anything to do with that righteous man!”

 

Pilate claimed he found no grounds for a guilty charge.
“Don’t have anything to do with that righteous man!”

 

Pilate washed his hands and had the man crucified.
“Don’t have anything to do with that righteous man!”

 

Just another political coup avoided.
“Don’t have anything to do with that righteous man!”

 

Just another insignificant death, and yet . . .
“Don’t have anything to do with that righteous man!”

Day Thirteen:  Write a ghazal.  A ghazal is formed of couplets, each of which is its own complete statement. Both lines of the first couplet end with the word, and that end-word is also repeated at the end of each couplet.
