Judas did not mean to “betray” me—
he never even knew such a big word
He was simply “a man of the market”
and all he did—when the buyers came—
was sell me

Was the price too low?
Not at all. Thirty silver coins
are no small matter
for a man made of dirt

My dearest friends were all Judases
they were all
men of the market
