THE APPEAL

GOT SENTENCED TO FOUR YEARS

THAT WAS FIVE MONTHS AGO

A STIFF SENTENCE TO IMPOSE

FOR A MINOR CRIME, THOUGH.

 

THEN THE APPEAL WAS FILED

A FEW MONTHS TO WAIT

IN THE MEANTIME, DOING TIME

WAITING TO HEAR OUR FATE.

 

AS THE DATE DRAWS NEAR

BACK TO REMAND FOR ME

THE COURT PROCESS IS SLOW

TAKES A FEW DAYS TO AGREE.

 

ALL DAY YESTERDAY IN TANKS

WAITING, HOUR AFTER HOUR

MY NAME NEVER WAS CALLED

TAKES A LOT OF WILL-POWER.

 

NOW, TODAY IS MY TIME

THE THREE JUDGES ARE TRUE

MY APPEAL IS CALLED UP

FOUR YEARS IS REDUCED TO TWO!

 

HALLELUJAH, MY SWEET HONEY!

JEHOVAH WAS ALWAYS BESIDE ME!

JUST THREE MORE MONTHS TO GO!

OUR LIFE WILL SOON BE FREE!
