Mount of Olives

A foreign camel noisly stands atop the Mount of Olives
entertaining tourists
tracing Abraham's path
to sacrafice his son
before God commanded "psyche".

There Herod built a holy Temple where nearby
Jesus was crucified.
Would his cross have had the view of the
Dome of the Rock?
Big and Shiny
in contrast to the endless matted Jerusalem stone.
For every religious icon sits millions of graves.

Um, Islam came 600 years after the death of Jesus, so I doubt he saw any Dome of the Rock (may it disappear quickly) as he hung on the cross. Also, Jesus probably never existed.
