    Punishment of the sinner

    In the darkness of the cell
    there came a steady ray of light.
    He immensely desired to breathe
    In that moonlit night
    Punished for no reason
    and just for his name,
    Neither a morsel reached his throat,
    nor did a drop of Adam's ale
    Demoralised without his own and
    bashed with the unknown.
    Not knowing what his fault was
    feeding on paper and sole.
    Touched a girl's dignity many years ago
    But had not faced the censure,
    This time it was accurate
    but for his past grave sin.......
