A Cock Crows

You knew him!
Denial
Followed him here!
Denial
Were with him!
Denial!

Denial one by one
By one He loved
Again,
And again;
Yet again.

And as foretold
A cock crows
Announcing betrayal
Which cannot be
Denied.

written in response to today’s prompt at The Daily Post, inspired by the account of Peter’s denial of Jesus in Matthew 26:69-75

On Day 6 of Na/GloPoWriMo the official prompt at NaPoWriMo.net is to write a poem that looks at the same thing from various points of view, citing as an example the most famous poem of this type probably being Wallace Stevens’ “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird”.
