I’ve been Arrested by Stephen Jarrell Williams

I’ve been arrested

For words too close to the coming truth


My accusers in their long robes

Heads with permanent scorn

Sitting high in their rootless chairs

Staring down at me in my handcuffs

My rags of defiant tears and blood clots


They demand I sign a statement of lies


I know they are filming me

Later twisting my voice and pics and purpose


Do not believe them


I pray this poem is unearthed

Someday from my unmarked grave.


Not so long ago, Stephen Jarrell Williams was called by some, the Great Poet of Doom…  Now, he writes at night, enthused, and waiting for the Coming Good Dawn.
