The Guilty Verdict

The Guilty Verdict

A Poem by Curiosity and Black Angel

The Guilty Verdict, being guilty of almost giving up the good fight that is life. The Guilty Verdict is an inside look into the things I have been guilty of in my lifetime.


The Guilty Verdict


Guilty by association

guilty by the race

guilty by facial expressions.




Guilty by inherited racism

guilty by a lack of religious affiliation.




Guilty as charged

guilty as Mr. Simpson

guilty by my rugged attitude.




I am guilty as charged

booked into jail,

fingerprinted and assaulted

by devious thoughts.


But defeated, I will never succumb

to the tangy taste of surrender.

Very nice, it has a good flow of explanations and suttle force in it and I myself, am not much into poems that do not ryme. but I liked this one a lot. Never retreat, never surrender! :)

great job.
