Deuteronomy 19:21

January 14, 2008
By Christopher Earnest, Wapello, IA

DNA tells the truth,
Unmasks the most hideous and
Evokes pleas of tooth for tooth.

The high profile suits search for loopholes,
Eager for hints of haziness as they
Represent the most loathsome souls:
O.J., Carruth, Spector, and the Menendezes.

No killers from Beverly Hills waiting
On death row, and the system is disturbing.
Money helps the guilty to evade their proper tolls
Yet, there is a grimmer one waiting for their souls.
