The ultimate forgiveness.

When Peter left (Leaving the keys under the mat For his successor) The world turned upside-down. His destination reached at last, His eyes had trouble focusing: Finding things right-way-up again Took some adjustment. Could not at first believe he saw (Beyond the shoulder of his Lord's embrace) A reinstated Judas standing there. His once-unruly tongue was strangely stilled. He heard a distant echo in his mind Of cock heralding in the world's worst day, And knew How far we all fall short, and in the crook Of his strong arm He gathered to his breast the wayward sheep.
