Judas Iscariot

Judas Iscariot


Through and through bent and bowed,
your withered heart cries aloud.
Alone oh, so alone!
In tempests darkened blackened soul
I stared, stared unto the night
where broken angels hid from sight.

Was it Satan who offered up
a golden chalice, a golden cup?
So the priests and Judas too
agreed on thirty pieces for the Jew.
As the silver was counted out;
see the Roman soldiers all about.

Now to betray with a kiss,
an ear cut off you’ll never miss.
Poor Peter denied me thrice,
as the cock crows run like mice.
So to the temple Iscariot goes,
seeking justice seeking blows.

Find a tree, ta hang ye by,
broken man soon ta die.
This field of blood know this day,
is where Judas chose ta lay.
Pilate asked a clever ruse,
“Art thou, the king of the Jews?”

Through and through, bent and bowed,
your withered heart cries aloud.
Alone oh, so alone !
In tempests darkened blackened soul
I stared, stared unto the night,
where broken angels hid from sight.

    The poem was great. I have had several thoughts on Judas's role in the bible. God's plan is full of purpose. I believe that Judas's pupose was to betray the Lord Jesus, because it set in motion the events which led up to the ressurection; Peter too; had he not denied Jesus three times, he would have been killed. And who started the Church? Why...it was Peter. I am not trying to argue with your wonderful poem...it just brought back the mystery of God's amazing plan. They both did their jobs.
