NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH

The pounding of the gavel can be heard
Throughout the land, or so it is said
Nothing but truth here shall be spoke
By no word or action to be misled

Wolf next to lamb he quietly stood
No twitch of lip or blink of eye
Twas nothing there to give away
Truth be said, there was something awry

The judge spoke, his voice so loud
So that all could hear and none in doubt
Decision reached, all truths been told
In this court, none the law shall flout

Matters not whether rich or poor
In life’s station low or held up high
Truth is truth, and the law is law
Without fear or favour judgement to apply

Having lectured on about fair and just
A twitch of lip, a wolf like grin
No surprises there when verdict read
The lamb had lost, the wolf did win
