The Crux

Two must decide – it’s now or it’s never:
Is the man in between them the king?
One is convinced and rewarded forever;
The other keeps doing his thing.

Before them, another (like us?): unappealing,
Undeserving – yet still was made free
To believe it or not; but no urgency feeling…
How did he choose? How will we?
