Innocent

They say hell hath no fury like a woman’s scorn

 ‘Tis true, seeing the fury at work in lives torn

 

 Front news pages and shattered life stories

As innocent men serve in dark cells of worry

 

Marriages and families broken

Heartbreak seen and unspoken

 

Equality and justice seem not to be present

Allowing this sadness and unfair descent

 

So many have lost the unlikely struggle

 Battled to be clear and their name unmuddled

 

Long after, how do they all carry on,

From the aftermath all placed by a woman’s scorn

 

-M. Jacobs

Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned - such a true statement DMJ! ... and I have to agree with Laydbak1 - my sentiments exactly. What comes around goes around ... Great work! ... Ken

It may not always be in this life, but every egregious lie which crushes another's life will be paid for - ten thousand times fold... Good write...

Crushed indeed. He was my neighbor and the nicest person. We are all so sad in the neighborhood and miss him terribly.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
