The Guilty Jury

To charge you with an offense
A love that is so intense
Truth with no pretense
You’re left with no defense.

To Scream the painful truth.
That kills like a riveting flute
Or spray it with twisted lies
To appease their raging pride.

Admitting sins you never did
Free will that they forbid
For all their secrets that might bleed
A liitle wink beneath the lid.

So now the time has really come
Aghast to dust and squeal the bomb
That love is not a rule of thumb
That should be silence like a lamb.

Their interest is their concern
The book of truth they long had burned.
To seal the verdict of your story.
Prejudice by the guilty jury.

  1. Admitting sins you never did

    For all their secrets that might bleed
    A liitle wink beneath the lid.

    This is such an intense stanza. It shows me in my mind the same idea that occurs after a Christmas break in late elementary, early middle school. When everybody comes back decked out in brand new clothes and there I was with the one pair of new jeans afforded me the eldest and only girl. The sense of satisfaction and pride I had in them fading so quickly when I realized other children probably had no idea what a hand me down was. I knew, then, as you demonstrate here, that the rules are very different depending on whether or not you’re the defendant, prosecutor, judge, or jury. None of them will understand, they are merely mocking the blindfold scaled to one size pays most.
