    As I sat and waited to be served at the last supper
    They passed around the cup of Christ
    I took a sip of the warm wine
    When Jesus started to build and said “someone at the table would soon take up his life”
    I sat quiet for a moment
    Then I said to myself
    Hmmm, I wonder who it is
    Whom-ever it is must be in search of wealth
    I didn’t let it bother me too much
    Because I knew I would give my life, before I let them touch the son of man
    And I’m quick to draw my sword and take an ear
    Just to make them understand
    I peaked around the table
    As the disciples sat in strict attention
    Not even touching the fish
    We caught the day before while we were fishing
    I leaned over
    Was sort of nice, but now I’m sober
    Whispered to the prince of peace
    I’m a ride or die soldier
    You can’t leave us at 33
    So many still need to behold ya
    The elderly, the sick and shut-in, plus the children
    They all need to know ya
    “I’m going to kill all of these Roman soldiers”
    He said: “son what have I told ya
    There is no need to fight back
    All I have to do is call upon my father Jehovah
    Herod thinks he’s bad
    But my father in heaven is a little bolder
    Besides that even in death
    These devils won’t end up stopping me
    Cause I’ll be back 3 days after
    But first I must fulfill this prophecy
    Tears in my eyes, as we all walked outside
    Here come some Roman soldiers walking down the street
    Low and behold to our surprise
    That bastard Judas kissed Jesus on the cheek
    The soldiers grabbed Jesus
    Then quickly took him away
    I looked Judas in the eyes and said “If they touch one hair on his head
    Guess whose also going to die today”
    They took him to the Garden where he was spat upon
    Before they nailed him to the cross
    My mind racing going crazy
    Trying to think of ways to get him off
    He looked at me and just smiled
    With nails placed in his feet and hands in a harsh manner
    He said man plans and God plans
    And that God is the best of planners
    Then he sat in silent pain
    Taking all of the crowds abuse
    I notice some writing on the wooden cross
    That read “Here is Jesus, King of the Jews”
    I turned around and said you fools
    But they paid me no attention
    In an instant they became silent
    I spun around as fast as I could, but he had already made his quick ascension
    With mixed emotions like a mulatto
    Now I’m looking for that trader Judas
    Here he comes with more Roman soldiers
    I’m about to take revenge as I hollered out “C’mon, let’s do this”
    He pulled out 30 talents
    I pulled out my sword
    As they walked my way I heard him say
    That this is what he had betrayed him for
    Just then a soldier approached me
    And asked if I was a friend of Christ
    He asked me once, then asked me twice
    When it was said and done, I had denied my beautiful brother thrice
    ****!!!!!!!!!!!
