A Plea for Troy and Justice

The life of a man hangs in the balance

Guilty or not there is a serious lack of evidence

To honestly prove he was the one to ever try

Furthermore less proof to sentence him to die

Why twenty years ago with judges, jurors and testimony

Could none of the legal eagles rule out

What seems suspiciously phony?

Only one fact is known, which is painfully sad

A police officer lost his life protecting good from bad

The policeman’s family still suffers day after day

The accused man’s family suffers in a different way

There must be a formula so the truth can be seen

Please not another senseless death will any truth glean

Please, some one turn the wheels of justice!

Please, implore all the law scholars!

DON’T EXECUTE

A death penalty to save taxpayer dollars

UScourts say guilt must be proven beyond all reasonable doubt

Never should false testimony be regarded with any clout

Still the Ten Commandments tell us not to bear

False witness against our neighbor

Neither should we deny him justice

Because he cannot afford the favor

We are all human, mistakes we will often make

Still tainted justice should make moral persons hesitate

Please take some more time to give

The justice system one more chance because

Once a man is killed he cannot be brought back.
