Mini Monoverse Story of Zacchaeus

by Carol Connell © 2017

Trek began

short guy ran

had a plan

crowd to scan

find God-man.


climb a tree


wait to see

this, the key.

Jesus came

called Zac's name

not to blame

or to shame

love, His aim.

Without flack

down came Zac

they went back

to his shack

had a snack.

And so thence

Zac was tense

soon relents

then repents

his offense.

Did restore

to the poor

stole no more

settled score


The story of Zaccheus is found in Luke 19:1-10
