Circumstantial Evidence - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Attributed to allegations raised...
That tarnishes one's integrity.
Implies an acknowledgement,
Of something known.
Something that has shown the doer,
Not able to perform the task of walking on water.
Without getting a dropp of torential rains...
Pounding down upon cresting waves,
Ten feet tall.
Away from the scene of the 'crime' commited.
Appearing fresh and yet...
In a drenched tuxedo.
That is worn and dripping...
While holding a glass of champagne.
I know what you all are thinking.
You all may have your suspicions.
And your thoughts are preposterous!
But let me say this about that...
To squash idIe chittering chats behind my back.
I am appalled by those unmitigated accusations.
I am not a lowlife 'tweeter' as insinuated.
I have been followed with intention to defame.'
You dispute this picture of you,
Appearing inebriated and naked?
Shouting out obscenities while using the internet?
Is not actually you at all?
'What you have is circumstantial evidence.
'Anyone' in the world could have done that.
I tell you,
Someone is out to smear my name...
