Innocent Murderer

His confession without doubt was true

This I say not for the tear

The white pupil and stretched balls

Nor the groan and incessant sob

And outbursts of "oh no God, please no"

The favors he humbly asked

Knowing of his life he would close

Its succulence never taste

Yet for forgiveness groped he

On public broadcasts struggled

Amidst angry and hateful voices

That knew no forgiveness but revenge

So fell his confession on angry deaf ear
