judas's justification

amongst every twelve
there shall a Judas exist,
Judas's nature, as embedded in the christian creed,
of betrayal and the feat of greed,
and on thirty pieces of silver insist,
for the head of the savior to shelve.

"Judas, do what you have to do"
Christ did charge, at the upper
chamber, after the last supper,
hour to hour,in the council corner
a transaction to save humanity,
an intertwining between vanity and eternity.

what is Judas's position?
a betrayer or the gateway to salvation?
if the silver hadn't clattered,
would the salvation have pattered?

a justification for Judas
for to Calvary,his bid took Christ,
and for each stripe
our sicknesses did wipe,
sympathy for Judas
hanging on the rope, with much grotesque,
eyes popping in a sad check
"do Christians recognize the part i did play?"
