Convict.ion

One

is brought on his knees.

One

it raises to the heights.

One

the scourge of society.

One

the exemplar of mankind.

One empowers him that faces

the status quo that devours so readily

the minds of men.

One, crippled, trampled under

the status quo that imprisons twice readily

the bodies of men.

One engulfs the heart in flames unquenchable

blazing high toward singular sentiment.

One envelops the flesh in bastille inescapable

sinking low to fathomless excrement detriment betterment.

Suffix severs not one from the other;

the onus belongs to guilt or true innocence

yet determined – confined – in tribunal’s conference.
