He Had His Chance To Save A Condemned Woman

He had his chance to show mercy just a few short years ago
For to spare the life of a condemned woman who was waiting on death row
Yet he refused her a reprieve and mercy to her did not show
Don't tell me of George W Bush 'mate' of him I already know.

True enough she was a sinner and she deserved to die many might say
And that for a foul crime such as murder with your life you ought to pay
And George W Bush the then Governor of Texas with the many did agree
And when he had his chance to show mercy he sadly lacked in sympathy.

He could have saved her he chose not to he suffered from voter dread
And would not over rule the judge's decision 'may God have mercy on her soul' he said
Her friends begged of him to spare her he said no and shook his head
He appeased the hard line voters and left her to be judged by God instead.

He follows in his father's footsteps as President of the U.S.A.
And like his father did before him he goes to the church to pray,
George Bush senior too went to church after his war planes bombed Baghdad
And he swore Saddam was the bad bloke who is good and who is bad?

He had his chance for to save a condemned woman and he left the chance go by
He appeased the hard line voters and left that poor woman die
He said may God have mercy on her, his only words of sympathy
But God who was the last to judge her is far more merciful than he.

Conversion

Overcast expression on pale skin, black glazed eyes,
obliviously sat
upright against the side of an old, stone church.

His hanging cheeks
his navy-blue Puffa jacket, warped around him,
his fingerless gloves untwitching in his lap...

Humans click past,
resplendent
their bouncing bags held tight,
heading to Marks and Spencers or the Colosseum.

The church drowns in his skant breath,
a sinking, extinct volcano
of illusory aid.

Regretfully caught in careless eyes
he doesn’t evoke sympathy,
- sympathy requires effort -

he is no more than half of the image:
a tramp by a converted church.

The Cowardliest Of The Cowardly

Those who take hostages and behead them are the cowardliest of men
For their cause in this way sympathy they cannot hope to win
For themselves they sow the worst of foredoom if for their heinous crimes they do not pay
Then the bad karma they've sown for themselves will catch up with them one day.

They always wear balaclavas when they appear with their hostages on t v
For to hide from the World their facial identity
They lack in a sense of self worth and they lack in hope and faith
For to commit such crimes against humanity they must be consumed with hate.

I pity their unfortunate hostages who are innocent of any crime
Their hard luck to be in the wrong place and there at the wrong time
For days they agonize and they worry as to what might be their fate
Of the good condemned to suffer we hear so much of late.

They are the cowardliest of the cowardly of them is all that can be said
And their bodies only living the souls in them are dead
And though the evil in them was created by a war
They have taken fundimentalism that one step too far.

The cowardliest and the most callous of people just those and nothing more
But one day karma will catch up with them for to level up the score
Those who take life so cheaply cannot expect any sympathy
Since they commit the most heinous of crimes against humanity.

Lack Of Sympathy

She tries to feel sympathy for the boy who cries
Looking deep into his eyes
She wants to comfort him and say it is alright
Most likely though it is not alright
She can’t lie to this boy who will not go
She can tell him that there’s something’s he doesn’t know

She tries to say don’t cry baby for you mother
Begs to believe that someday she’ll see her father
These words do not slip her lips
Because she knows the feel of wrong fingertips

She would have loved to say brother don’t drink and drive tonight
Given up her own life to save him from that terrible sight
Where blood and death made home
But all she does is sit and write about it in poems.

She wants to feel that grace of sympathy
But how can she
So all she says is this
Yes it is horrible to lose a father
Never to return home to say I love you and goodnight
Pleading to God why did he have to go
Yes for your father to be dead when twelve is sad
But for him to touch you when you’re eight you just wish him so
