Black Robed Devils

From a new series:

The Judge: Number Four

Every day I listen to
a hundred lawyers spouting lies,
I know, I was a lawyer too,
and worshiped at my clients’ feet,
or checks, or cash, or once a car,
and worth it too, I was, he got
two years to five; should have got twenty,
Rolls Royce Corniche, beautiful,
I have it still, drive to the beach,
when I’m not busy giving years
to people who are innocent.
