There's a story in the bible that should be clarified- it's true that Jesus Christ was crucified and died but Judas never hung himself I know he's still alive. I was doing shots with him down at a local dive, he was dirinking bourbon and I was drinking rye. He was getting wasted as I listened analytically to a story of betrayal he was pouring over me. He wore a smile upon his face and talked congenially but under that exterior it was obvious that he was a raging fusion of covert hostility. I sat there and listened through several shots of rye until the conversation faded and then it finally died. He paid his tab in silver and as he staggered off outside I sat there on that barstool completely mystified as to when he'd finally kiss this relationship good-bye. Judas is a friend of mine but I want all of you to know I get very nervous when he stops by to say hello.

    O.K. You picked a fine one to be friends with. At least you didn't go with him. There were two Judas. The other was a cousin to Jesus. That one is my friend. Great poem. T F S. ... Lucilla
