Hard Labour



This is purely a fictional piece created to fit both #dverse and #fowc prompt today.

My worn feet ache: stood far too long,

Shoes taken off: relieving ache.

Leg, arm and hand: tired from glut,

Glut of hard work: sentence given.

Child killed: blame received,

No alibi: alone sleeping.

My innocence: always ignored,

Glut hard labour: not my reward.

Child killed: mother guilty,

Father blamed: never innocent.

  1. Strong, poignant writing Rog! So often the guilty is let free and innocent sentenced. Thank you so much for writing to the prompt. 💝💝
