You passersby, please stop and stand and hear
About a Man who came to earth and bled,
Whose purpose was to drive away death’s fear.
Before His face the demon-angels fled.
By dying He forever loosed sin’s shackle,
Then rising up again, for you He pled.
Forever He has silenced Satan’s cackle;
By living He has quenched Hell’s hottest flame.
The unbelieving soon shall hear the crackle,
When He returns and calls His own by name.

Usually a terza rima ends with a couplet or tercet. I chose to end mine with a monostich.
