Judith: Harmless fun?


He got away with it every time

repeating the same old crime

‘Blow to the head’, on the report

‘An accident’, his usual retort


What had made him commit this awful act?

He couldn’t deny it, it was a statement of fact

Each time the policeman asked him ‘Why?’

Under cross examination, told not to lie


He simply hung his head in shame

promising never to do it again

Each day Judith hoped he would change

but each day he became more deranged


It was a wicked thing to do

in front of all those kids too

Striking his wife, hit after hit

chanting, ‘That’s the way to do it
