Penance

Staying upright

standing for a cause

being myself

letting my expressions

divulge disapproval

was pure folly.

 

The world was flabbergasted.

They had not seen

transparency and candor

of this order.

Blinded by truth, and fearing Doomsday

they screamed ‘Murder’.

 

The few who understood

chose silence

It was the safest bet

for a peaceful existence.

The corpse hung on the Square

Still asks them for Penance.
