Comeuppance

September 3, 2009

A jury could just hurry not to like you.

Just like that.

You’d bet they’d not get you,

But oh they’d get you

Just like that.

It goes without saying  but I will mention,

The sentencing would lack prose,

But not punctuation.

Take That!  Just like that.

Late & lastly you’d finally serve.

And just like that

Solitary confine-

Ment for you?

 

Free       maybe

    I enjoyed the poem tremendously. Wordmath, doesn’t matter, use of punctuation to make a point, wonderful stroke in my opinion.

    I enjoyed the sharp and quick splay of words. I enjoyed the not quite ambiguity of the poem, the uncertainty about what the affair was about, who you’re talking to and who the protagonists are. The end

    Late & lastly you’d finally serve.

    “And just like that

    Where the poem is resolved resolving the questions as well. Very enjoyable piece of writing.
