Jury Duty

 

Jury

Jury waiting
The ultimate bore,
‘Tis very surprising
Not a single gasp or snore,
Has broken the silence
Or disturbed this quiet crowd,
So very quiet
As if we’re covered by a shroud.

As silent as a tomb
This roomful of jurists,
A gathering of equals
If you believe the purists,
Who claim that our system
Of justice, is the best,
But it’s slower than molasses
To be convicted, after your arrest.
