Under The Fig Tree

What was he thinking about,
Under the fig tree?
Nathanael must’ve been a smart ass,
A thinker, sitting under the branches
Contemplating life.

He might’ve been thinking,
We’ve waited so long,
Maybe this is all a sham?

Or how can God be good,
We’re slaves again, Egyptians? Romans?
What difference does it make?
Does anything matter?

Or maybe he just thought about lunch.

Jesus called him a true Israelite,
In whom there was nothing false,
But Nathanael was more impressed
That Jesus knew he was sitting under the tree.
