Appeal

We have heard,

through the legal grapevine,

that Father is appealing

against his sentence.

He wants it thrown out, quashed.

Aunt says this was to be expected,

considering the money

Father has at his disposal.

He is always over-determined to win.

Aunt says we must shrug off this

foolhardy bid for freedom,

because it shan’t materialise.

The man will do his term,

Aunt pronounces, oracle-like.

I hope she is right.
