Juridical

Hammer falls.
(Hold my breath.)
Hammer falls.
(Hold my breath.)

Case adjourned
guiltyguiltyguilty

I am not.
I did not.
I didn’t.

 Rough hands grab
   my
shoulders.
Strong hands lead
   me
away….
How? Why?

Have mercy.

Run back. Plead. Fall to my knees. Plead. Run back.

Don’t. Wouldn’t help. Don’t.

Wouldn’t help. WOULD NOT HELP!

Silent prisoner,
Guilty
(so they say)
I let them
(no choice)
Lead me
away
