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.
