In His Memory  

Amazed how he could have done it
Forgive them in that way
Was she expected to take pity on the
baker who deprived her of change,
boss for giving the job to his niece,
husband who bedded her sister...
The beggar, (pocketing twenty pounds),
prayed for pardon, before nailing her to the wall,
arms pointed at the heavens
to know his pain
A man whose heart was far greater
than her own.
