A Tale of the Guilt
November 20, 2007
Oh, they master this ungraceful hit!
When with your hands down
You contemplate the passing promises.
Are you defeated really?
How loudly silence is protesting!
(Who else is there to protest?)
But the referee keeps counting
the unfair seconds:
It’s not our fault, it’s time’s!
Why it goes till nine?
And as he washed his hands Pilate
I washed my hands.”
