The Guilty Verdict (Writing as Black Angel)

Guilty by association
Guilty by Race
Guilty by facial expressions.
 
Guilty…
Guilty by inherited racism
Guilty by a lack of religious affiliation.
 
Guilty…
Guilty as charged
guilty as Mr. Simpson
guilty by my rugged attitude.
 
Guilty…
I am guilty as charged
Booked into jail,
Fingerprinted and assaulted
by devious thoughts.
 
But defeated, I will never succumb
to the tangy taste of surrender.
