"Innocent! Innocent!"
The cries rang out.
People sneered.
And time fell away.

"Innocent! Innocent!"
No one believed,
The story he told.
They all snickered.

"Innocent! Innocent!"
The tears trailed down.
The needle was inserted.
And the silence began.

Innocent. Innocent.
The words read.
Discovered on the wall.
People covered it up.

Innocent. Innocent.
People remembered.
Innocence he had claimed
While the guilty ran free.

Guilty. Guilty.
The evidence mounted.
And the verdict was given,
While they remembered the cries.

The cries that rang out.
Innocent! Innocent!
Now he lay under the ground.
Innocent etched on his stone.
