Justice*

*warning:  content may offend some readers

Today’s poem is in the triquain form.

 

we found you

violating a child

trial by villagers; sentenced to death

burned at the stake in a bonfire at the churchyard

we spread your ashes over our fields

you’ve helped feed us for years

we give thanks
