ADD TO MY FAVORITES
Unsure of what is best to do.
I’d truly rather run and hide
Than sit here feeling lost, confused.
I know I can’t go back and change
Atrocities that I have done,
A pardon I cannot arrange,
The law I know I can’t outrun.
In fear and trepidation wait
To be arrested by police,
For that is sure to be my fate,
Can’t seem to get a moment’s peace.
And sure enough, I hear a knock,
To entrance timidly I pace,
With trembling hands, the door unlock,
Embarrassed, stand here face to face.
“Please put your hands behind your back,
Must nip this problem in the bud,
The English language you’ve attacked,
You’re writing is as clear as mud.
Must keep your hands from penning more,
For unsuspecting victims read,
Not knowing what may be in store.
Your gibberish they do not need.”
With head hung low, cooperate,
I’m taken to the writer’s jail.
They’ll hold me here where I will wait.
It’s where they take you when you fail.
I have some time to really think
Behind confining iron bars.
And as I ponder in the clink,
I know I’m guilty of the charge.
I come before the judge in court,
Express my genuine remorse.
Am sentenced to receive support
And take another writing course.
With tears of gratitude I say
That I’ll be much more careful now.
I’ll proofread, edit, never sway,
With hand on Bible, this my vow.
