  • The Defendant



    Can a crowd obtain justice?

    Will a man cement his fate?

    When you look at all he's done,

    Do you consider what he'll create?


    Will it matter if he's innocent?

    Are you able to differentiate

    The emotion from the evidence?

    Or will the tears choose his fate?


    Will the chaos beyond the doors,

    Send echoes into the courtroom?

    Will the stoic man, once praised,

    Put on the cuffs and mask of gloom?


    The insatiable eyes, with mouth agape

    Can be seen as shadows on all the walls

    Its spiny hands are waiting to grasp

    A hated man, abandoned by the law

    I liked this, especially the interrogative throughout and the change of pace conclusion.
