Two Betrayals

The first one sold his Master out,

For very little doe.

The other completely denied Him,

And told them where to go.
The first was filled with sorrow,

And tried to bring the money back.

The other heard the cock crow,

And wept silently in his sack.
They were filled with guilt

And a conviction not from above.

For both betrayed their King

The one they really loved.
Although both were offered forgiveness,

Only one received.

The other died in anguish,

While his Master grieved.
