NOT ME

Ambushed by legal contract

Designed to silence justice                              

Costly courtroom battles

Truth publicly corrupted.

 

A battle plan that failed

Evidence protected

Defended by legal privilege

Reinvented selves beware.

 

The list of crimes reported

Over time grew ever long

Yet onus placed on children

To know and tell holds strong.

 

Whistles blown were silenced

False claims testified

Finance forced compliance

Realities denied

 

Blighted lives remembered

Stories remain unheard

Justice long awaited

Is no justice at all.
