The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Canadian Crime

Canadian Crime


James Bredin

The main witness to the double murder could not be found,
He too was wanted but had somehow decided to leave town,
The others were inclined to kill each other often and fast,
Common denominator single mothers and ghetto past.

So the double murder charges all had to be stayed,
And four maybe hitmen walked away but they were not dismayed,
Released back into the ghetto and ready to kill once more,
Except this time kill the witness too - not like before.

Where soft on crime appointed judges strutted their stuff,
Political appointees for life and no need to be tough,
Legal aid lawyers with their double gobbledegook talk,
Just open the prison gates and let the prisoners all walk.
