Jud-Us

Written by: Glenn Sentes

Everybody is a judas 
who bears a venomous kiss.
Judas is he whom you thought 
wears a smile but actually hisses.

Judas is he who took fame
not just in the ancient scriptures
But judas is he too 
who's seated at your back, 
or at your right, or at your left.

Everybody is a judas
who trades you for gold coins.
Judas is he whom you thought
a friend but turned out a fiend of yours.

Everybody is a judas-
judas you, judas they, judas me
but we'll only remain judases
if we hang ourselves by that tree.
