One Word – Is It Legal?

One Word: crime

They said it was a crime
a crying shame
a shameful thing
to even speak of it
think of it
nevermind say it out loud
for crying out
but I think itΒ  less
for bringing to the light
of day
of daylights scared out of
the bejeesus
well evil likes dark
don’t ya know
knowledge of good
and evil
shut the door
keep it out
it will out
it always does

those chickens just love

to roost
