They gave him a choice

Between Justice and Mercy

His word was final

But couldn’t judge adversely

The case was unfairness

Of gross crassness

Not hint of largesse

His word was final

But he was in denial

His choice when he spoke

Was Mercy in the Utmost

To judge himself was sweet

Allowed him to retreat

A chance to run away

And commit his sins

Another day
