Serving Time

What did I do to deserve this?

What exactly was my crime?

You tried me in my absence

So I could offer no defence

You found me guilty

And now I’m serving time

 

 

You concocted a case against me

Appointed yourself as jury

Gave me no way to contest

No chance to launch a protest

Ruled “the prosecution rests”

You found me guilty

And now I’m serving time

    1. Ha, yes. I certainly wrote this as a metaphorical piece rather than literal. My point of reference was the group of ‘friends’ that shunned me for reasons they never told me :/
      But widely speaking, yes, it’s about all who wreak undue punishment or retribution. 🙂
