The Green Mile - Poem by Nick krakana

I could have let these words slip by

But couldn't when I saw his jail guard cry

John Coffy changed some hearts that day

When the order of electricity passed his way

What else were they to do

The time and place required a death

An equalizer from his last breath

The math here doesn't work he say 

On that day the sparrow did sing

And the rain it ceased to let the sun shine in

Mr. Jingles received the gift that day

Imparting of power so he could stay

Boss lived on to see his kin all gone

A constant reminder of what he'd done wrong
