Kangaroo Court – Poem #56

Kangaroo Court – Poem #56

Brush the dust off my shirt and tie

Swear an oath to a perverted lie

Did you raise me to put me down

Arraign me, for the loss you found

Recite your evidence to the crown

As the jester laughs with the crowd

Entertain these clowns with an execution

As cheers filter through the pollution

Will the kangaroos, find me guilty

An innocent man, synthetic committee

I did what you weren’t brave enough to do

So, hang me because I’m nothing like you
