Unshackle My Verse - A Literary Law

Unshackle my Verse

A Literary Law

They found my ink,
The analysis has begun
I guess I didn't think,
They'd find out I was the one

I don't want to be imprisoned
Hopefully I'll just get fined
I should have made a revision
I never should have rhymed

The warnings were posted everywhere,
"If you rhyme you'll be fined or do time"
It isn't like I wasn't aware,
I just lost control of mind

I didn't think I'd get caught
Then I saw the grammar guard
I was sitting, lost in thought
When I saw him in the yard

They'll match the pen to the ink,
Then the ink to the rhyme !
My cell will close with a clink,
The fingerprints will be mine !

It's hard to believe they can bust us,
Calling it...
Poetic justice
