The Bad Influence

Whole Life Imprisonment Is Justice

A poem

Sarah Everard/ Wikipedia

Whole of life sentence is justice

For your crime

Your misuse of power

Is beyond the defined

You handcuffed that poor woman

Knowing you had no right

You raped her then took her life

On that warm dark night

Perhaps this just judgement

will stop the next man wishing

to harm a woman

In memory of Sarah Everard.
