Not Guilty, Brief Drama for Three Voices
The sweetest chord
Inscribed upon the soul:
In truth one betwixt “Amen”
And morbid casual curse:
In truth, likewise, one fully soiled.
And all of these be true
Evidence myriad broken rules,
Holy Claimant of Mercy
Proclaims, “This one, Not Guilty”.
Erased, no trace of old offense
No shadow’s mark, all debts are cleansed.
Pardoned, what glorious turn of events.
Another full paid the price.
Be Quick, now Depart;
Disappear, go, leave no shadow
No collection of what was owed.
Be let off the hook
Slip the noose
Was once self-doomed and judged
Yet Petitioner leaves begrudged.
