The Rigged Jury

by Duane Locke

E-mail To Damniso Lopez 151


The
Rigged jury
Exonerated
The watchdog
That slept
While the wall
Was climbed
To burn
The ancestral villa.
The color
Of the fire
Was vermilion
And yellow.
The burner
Was the inheritor
Of the ancestral villa.
When the
Watchdog awoke,
The watchdog
Was stroked
By the burner
As the burner
And watchdog
Watched
The vermilion
And yellow.
