Damn, a speeding ticket! The fact is I’ve earned it,
What good work can ever prove I don’t deserve it?
It’s not about my character but about my transgression,
And boasting a clean past only bolsters my confession.
What’s done is done, no matter what you do or will do,
You will pay the price and there’s nothing to shield you.
Even if you reach humility and renounce all devilry,
This judgement’s sealed and you will pay the penalty.
~Poet of Ephraim
