The poem is about Judas Iscariot’s flash back of Jesus life after he betrayed him, he regretted his actions when he saw the ugly incident happening. It was too late to save his Master and the bribe he took was seen as blood money. Death was his punishment and it was believed that he hanged himself.

He remembered His face

Loving, caring and always smiling

Signs of forgiveness, acceptance

Hope and consolation

His face he betrayed.


He remembered His hands

Miraculous, mighty, strong,

Touchy and wonderful

The hands that healed

And calmed the storm

The hands he betrayed.


His Master’s mind,

Loving, forgiving, acceptable

His words wisdom, touchy and calm

He watched his Master

He valued his Master

Foolishly, he thought evil.


Evil with money

For thirty pieces of bloody silver

Probably the first to sell a man

The was no turning back

He rejected it but it was too late.


Bloody money

For strangers everlasting home

His Master he could not save

But hanged himself

As his soul perished in hell.
