A Seeking Of Evidence - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Who broke the piggybank?
I would suggest,
Those with the crumbs on their mouths...
Or the ones standing over there,
Licking their greasy fingers.

And I would deduce from my reasoning process,
That the ones with their hands out like cups.
With a living they do daily on the streets...
As if to re-enact,
Scenes from ever present poverty...
Would be the last ones I'd accuse to being suspects.

But then again,
You are the one who claims...
A seeking of evidence without a labelling of blame,
Is needed to determine with proof who is at fault.
Without the benefit of doubt to cross your mind.
