Rule of Law

what you try to do
is a terrible crime
so your going down
for a very long time

Your rhythm is dodgy
your stories absurd
people need protecting
from your rhyming word

some time in the clink
should help you compose
so that we hear no more
of your clunky prose,

and people can read
without any fears
you’r going down
for at least five long years

thats not at all fair”
why kind of sentence is this?
the judge simply said
“why? its Poetic Justice”.
