Unjustified Guilt

A Poem by Foxx Falcon

A tribute to those that have been prosecuted in the name of a God they did not know.


I plead guilty

To a crime they invented

Only to draw forth the silence

Of their judgment

Let them pretend to know me

Let them place upon my shoulders their God

I can take a little extra weight

If it gives them a little peace

Come dawn my body will burn

To draw a close to their heavy night

I can no longer weep for them

I haven't any stories to tell

My legacy will be a stain

Upon their history

Something they may again point to

When their children question

The validity of their claims

Once one plead guilty

They will say

And laid before God's judgment
