Coronial Inquest Into The Death of Judas

Coronial Inquest Into The Death of Judas

The body of a man
A one Judas
A Zealot
He did hang
In an unknown remiss

A comrade known
And Emissary sent
From a king
To Pilot of Rome
Who in Silver Tribute remit

The mans’ last meal
A Pass Over Communion
Spiritual flesh and blood
In a shared memorial
Histories tears their union

He left as requested
The wish of his King
As his Delegate
The Zealots word already tested
The real traitor the King naming

The Emissary accompanied returns
Greeting his King with a kiss
A loving embrace
But quickly soon learns
Another apostle reads it amiss

He lashes out with a sword
A soldiers ear is severed
Violently assaulted
First Aid the Kings word
His teachers well remembered

The soldiers with good warrant
The King they duly cease
As the accessory
Fearing their freedom to forfeit
The apostles and soon betrayer flees

For the King no witness is found
And the cock crows each morning
Betraying the dawn
The traitor recalling at the sound
The Kings’ prophecy and warning

All the apostles soon recall
The theft from the communal purse
Silver in pieces
But the betrayer only his fall
Eternally his silence makes worse

The Kings Emissary found hung
Silver stolen or returned
Emissaries Tribute
Soon differing witnesses are sung
And what truth ever learned

The King convicted and died
The Emissaries one true witness
A Brother
Three times the betrayer had lied
Was it two suicides or two murders ?
