Bartender On A Corner - Poem by ovidd bcw

she was not beautiful
but her hair
it was her darkness i caught

i watched
her moves
knowing she was not
more than young

i was old
but so is everyone

i often wonder
why men do the evil
they do
but stand defiantly
for a crime un-worthy
of forgiveness

and then i wonder why
so many pass through
un-noticed by the many
because they are 'guilty'
until DNA proves
them innocent
of everything
a jury thought? !

for this i pondered
and this i wondered
what we think may not be

and she may not be,
but i spent my moments
of the difference
something that could not be
