Innocent Until Proven Guilty - Poem by alan brown
I appeal to the sense of the witness.
To come forward without a delay.
As they will be hearing my case very soon
And I don't want to be sent away.
As you know from what you have told me
on the day that it happened so quick
It was not me who stabbed her to death
but a very sharp sticking out stick.
They all knew that I loved her
and wouldn't have heart her that way
So please come to me very quickly
as their going to send me away.
I'v now been found guilty of murder
and the judge is making his count.
As the years that he is willing to give me
will make ma an old man when I get out
So please will you come forward
as their coming to take me away.
And tell them the truth that you told me
On that very last tragic day.
