You’re innocent until proven guilty.
Donning bright white wigs, long black gowns,
a web do lawyers weave
so the jury believe
in the circus devoid of clowns.
A courtroom is far from reality,
with a unique sense of morality.
The prosecution sits and frowns,
Whilst the defense deceives
away from those who grieve.
Though in accusations you drown,
you’re innocent until proven guilty.
