THE VERDICT by AGBAAKIN AMIABLE JERRY
The garment of innocence is torn.
Virtues have faltered.
Son of noble birth.
Where is your chastity?
Bound in his killing fists with steel.
Led to the jailyard.
I mourn you!
The Magistrate says:
‘Are you guilty or inculpable”
A speckle of suspense glows on everyone’s
Followed by quakes.
From my heart.
The looks of perplexity on the Barristers.
Everybody adjusts his buttocks on the
Visible thread of sweat courses down the
with verbal dexterity.
But with a soul defiled with Criminality.
‘NO,I Am NOT’
An admix of confusion and suprise.
Thirty minute Recess.
Everybody looks upon the tree of Justice
For an apple fall.
The limbs of Law have paralyzed?
To sanction Criminality.
‘Break’ is over.
The guardian of the Law enters the verdict
Not for the Judge.
But for the arrival of Blind Justice.
The defendant pouted his bare chest.
Popped out his fiery eyes.
Slapping Justice on his face.
With on impunity.
His counsel argues weakly.
And dived into realms of fallacy.
The prosecutor vehemented and wooed
The Magistrate looks down and frowns.
‘My hands are tied’Said he.
Woe to Audu,woe to criminality.
Woe to larceny and carnage.
Bound to his teeth to the Jailyard.
And jubilatory sighs seek the air.
