Hung by None

I always thought, if you tell the truth, then you couldn’t be punished,

But this time, the truth didn’t set anyone free.

Except, of course, the culprit of the sickening crime.

Which, in my book doesn’t make much sense.

This is how the legal system works, what we all fight for, you see.

The defendant is judged by a group of his peers,

And when he is found not guilty, it makes you wonder.

If a person is found not guilty, despite doing  these things,

Does that make the jury just like him?

I can’t remember it all clearly, but I thought the jury heard

me and understood. “He did it,” I said it loud and clear.

The victim was brave, the victim was bold, a victim no more.

But her pleas fell upon deaf ears, apparently.

The way I see it is, if you’re going to be a pedophile,

You’ll never be convicted, because American television has

Screwed over any victim of sexual abuse by convincing

The jury there isn’t enough evidence to convict a man.
