Not Guilty, Brief Drama for Three Voice

Not Guilty,  Brief Drama for Three Voices

 

Prisoner:

The sweetest chord

Salvation’s Word

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,

Deficient,

Delinquent,

And Filthy.

 

Mercy:

Holy Claimant of Mercy

Proclaims, “This one, Not Guilty”.

Erased, no trace of old offense

No shadow’s mark, all debts are cleansed.

 

Prisoner:

Pardoned, what glorious turn of events.

 

Mercy: 

Compensation sufficed

Another full paid the price.

 

Petitioner: 

Be Dismissed,

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.
