An Ode to Caiaphas

In another life and another time, I made the most tragic of mistakes which has brought down two millennia of suffering and bondage in one man’s name.  For I was merely trying to silence a rabble-rouser who would have torn my people asunder, leaving them as easy prey under the mighty Roman sword.  Instead, I made a martyr of him, and in doing so destroyed not only our enemies, not only ourselves, but more importantly, our very belief in humanity, and for that I hang my head in shame.
