The Accused

Fingers pointing
name dropping
half-shouted
lies

self-protecting
ever hiding
stifled in their
sleep

dark room
judging eyes
praying hands
beg

unheard voices
no free choices
it's all decided
doom

block of wood
swinging metal
a shock of red
blood

one last word
to be heard
all alone
innocent
