The Judas tree

The scent of the Judas tree
Hangs in the air
Lingering like a fresh memory
Laughter and ridicule
Worms need to eat too
Tormented by the inner deceit
A puppet in a game
The pawn to be sacrificed
Rules changed as the play lives on
Living in conjecture and derision
Covering the truth in deviation
Manipulation by fate
The clock reads not quite enough
Thee tree's shadow reaches
Elongated and pointing
Through history weaving a tale
Live long
A ghost of your deceit ferments
Intoxicating some
Haunting the tormented
Rationalization a shield that weathers
The tortured souls wonders lost
Read between the lines
The taste bitter
No matter how sweet the wine
