The betrayal of the day

My heart aches when I behold
my blood trading me for gold
So is it when a friend of foe
contributes to my woe

Even those I confided in
I was shocked to
see them as Judas 
who bartered christ for silver

Now I know humans
They are like cactus tree
If you lean on it
It will drink your blood
His heart is serpent
disguised with a flowering face

If you see a man
and a beast
Spare the beast
Kill the man
The snake that tempted
man might be saved

Let tortured be man
He is a rat
Not a friend of cat
Alas! You are a traitor man.
