400. My Lord, what will happen?

My Lord, what will happen if I deceive You?
“Son, I shall simply die.”
My Lord, what will happen if You deceive me?
“Son, nothing will happen to you.
Your ignorance-friends
Will console you, strengthen you,
To pay Me back in My own coin.
But in My case, if you, My all,
Ever deceive Me, I shall simply die,
Since I have no other friend and none to call My own.”
