After A Life Of Rhyme

Listening to the charges read I stood silently in the dock These strange events I have to say Were really quite a shock I had enjoyed a life of rhyme Until I was finally caught And ended up being tried In a poetry court “Not guilty” I quietly said It seemed to make things worse As I was found guilty of Crimes against free verse After five years in prison I'm free, I’ve done my time No, I have not learned my lesson I am going straight back to rhyme
