-‘Poem,
do you have
anything to say
on your own behalf
before I pronounce sentence?

— “Not much, your honor…
I tried to be true, concise,
meaningful…
even stayed away from
the old Rhyme Street Irregulars…
the truth is, my creator,
Neruda he’s not,
so you get this instead…
what am I to do?”

-‘Very well,
it’s the sentence
of this court
that you enter
image rehab,
at once!’

-‘You’re also ordered
to wear around your title
for six months,
a special bracelet
which emits a loud signal
anytime you come within 50 feet
of a poetry venue.’

-‘Do you understand?
el comprendo?!’

-‘The Word Court of Poetic Justice
is adjourned!’
