2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 11 – In My Defense.

innocent-or-guilty-katerina-apostolakou

For today’s prompt, write a defensive poem.

I protest innocence

I wasn’t even there

I was somewhere else

In a woman’s arms

Loving and being loved

I couldn’t have done it

It’s not my style.

I dispute the video evidence

I wasn’t even there

It must be a set up

I’m a good man

People say I have an honest face

I could sell used cars

You have to believe me.

The witness is obviously wrong

I wasn’t even there

It was a wet day, the video shows sunshine

The victim was left-handed

I love left-handed people

This is such a miscarriage

I am left hanging my head.

    Haha. Very ‘defensive poem’ all the excuses you could up with in self-defense. Well written Michael.
