The amok of Pedro by Robinson Cavalcanti

Pedro, the traitor of Jesus Christ This man, if he could be called a man Killed 12 followers of Christ Like a crazed Wolfman Pedro firstly meet with Christ in a forest Christ asked him if he had mercy of other people Pedro answered: Yes. Christ presented him 12 followers of him Pedro was excited. He never had any followers Jesus said: they were my followers, now they will be yours Apollos, Evodius, Archippus, Sosthenes, Barnabas, Onesiphorus, Andrew, Moses, Judas, Philip, Simon and Nathanael. Began to follow Pedro Pedro reportedly yelled to Christ "Oh father, thanks" Jesus then seen Pedro as a reliable friend He would everyday visit him at bars And once helped Jesus to transform water into wine But one day Thing slipped On March 30 Pedro called Jesus, to talk with him After a little conversation, Jesus began to suspect of Pedro And terminated the conversation with "You aren't the prophet; i want my sons back" Pedro got infuriated. On April 3, Pedro called his followers to a forest Having called the followers, Pedro said that a miracle would happen He said to them to look at the sky, because the sun would do a such thing But while they were looking at the sky, he got a dagger And fastly stabbed 12 of his followers, all of whom died. He then called Jesus, yelling "Now came here father to see the disaster i made" Jesus was terrified by the murders: "How could you?" But he did not panicked; he put his hands into Pedro's head Saying "Father forgive them, for they do not know what they do" After saying the phrase seven times, he said Pedro "Go ahead." Pedro did go out and was not heard anymore. Jesus said to his followers that he had an follower named Pedro, Who was a traitor to him His followers were shocked to hear the story. Pedro is still remembered, to this day, as a mass murderer, and traitor His whereabouts are unknown. Written by Brazilian bishop Robinson Cavalcanti in 1996 to American bishop Douglas Cameron.

Killing is bad. A few know it. Pedro was a bad man. Jesus christ gave him twelve followers. This was little understood by Pedro . Pedro did not possess the quality of a human being.Pedro did not panick even after the murders.The poem expresses that a life of a crimainal cannot be changed easily. A lot of work has to be done. Its a challenge to humanity.
