Not One

It was a small trial.
No prosecutor
asked questions.
The judge wielded
god-like powers.
Ill luck turned me
barbarous I admit.
Full responsibility
was larger than
my pockets.
Instead of fines
and excessive fees,
I was cast out
of the human race.
This sentence
benefitted
the injured party
not one iota.
