New York State chief judge Sol Wachtler was famously quoted by Tom Wolfe in The Bonfire of the Vanities that “a grand jury would ‘indict a ham sandwich,’ if that’s what you wanted.

“The Sixth Amendment, or Amendment VI of the United States Constitution is the section of the Bill of Rights that guarantees a citizen a speedy trial, a fair jury, an attorney if the accused person wants one, and the chance to confront the witnesses who is accusing the defendant of a crime, meaning he or she can see who is making accusations.”

Never knew till I met you: a poem

Never knew till I met you

That my soul could even cry so loud.

I never knew till I met you

That my soul could even have so many tears.

 

I want to be set free,

Set so free to fly.

To a place way beyond the sky.

You stripped so much of me.

You took all that I was and starved my spirit of light.

And slowly, emotionally, I died.

Day after day I changed slowly, totally, inside.

 

I never knew till I met you that my soul could even cry so loud.

I never knew till I met you that my soul could even have so many years.

 

You tried to take from me the love that GOD has.

Oh GOD, woe to my family.

How can Satan advocate for family?

Now I wonder why God won’t even save me?

 

I never knew till I met you that my soul could even cry so loud.

I never knew till I met you that my soul could even have so many tears.

 

How does a man live on and on like this?

When he doesn’t even know where his heart is.

Whenever he knocks on the door he is powerless.

Trapped in a Babylon fortress.
