Enemys throughout, the day they very met
fighting tooth and nail,with both warrior hearts
dominance of the town,being the ultimate prize
hatred adding fuel,enlighting inferno to prevail.
My best pal from knee high,would rather do without
the confrontations hanging on him
i will call the oppostion shaun, although fine with me
thriving fear,bullying yet an awesome stature.
The fatal night in question,etched in many minds
a long long fight ended,my pal oblivious towards
a knife was placed into his hand,while recieving extreme beating
lashed out,everything stopped,pal overcome with relief.
At court not guilty verdict,the jury did return
on the basis of harrassment, and all that it entailed.
Yet families effected,can see it from both sides
loss and freedom,though my pal lives with everyday.
