Fresh Vindication - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
How sweet the smell,
Of fresh vindication.
From intended crimes...
Committed done to do.
How mixed the message,
This sends to the children.
Already conflicted and mentally confused.
But growing to know whatever they do,
Will never have them accused to prove...
Their innocence to declare it,
Has more merit if kept dared...
To deny all the evidence,
What appears to be videotaped.
With them directing.
And also rehearsing every move of it too!
Has to be the best reflection,
Of a democracy...
One can afford and expect to get.
"This is outrageous."
You must agree...
Each frame of the videotape,
Has the accused dressed impeccably.
And the closeups are tastefully done.
The portrayal of innocence,
Has unmistakably been captured very well.
Look at that face.
Not a trace of revenge although victimized.-
"I tell you,
All of this B.S...is staged.
It's an act."
They are beginning to explain,
How long it took them to acquire...
The feeling to forgive,
All of the ones who participated...
In the game played.
To then claim to place blame,
On the one who paid them.
Even though no one but the accused was seen.
And that was all.-
You buy that crap? "
Think about it.
Who in their right mind,
Would think to create this nonsense?
With a doing just to make it up.-
"I still have questions that remain unanswered."
-I do too.
The lighting could have been much better.
What do you think? -
