Brought to Book
“Brought to book”, it is an ancient phrase
A criminal is made to face his sin
To stand before the judges who pronounce his final days
The days when retribution will begin
Sometimes it is a court of high estate
With robes and pomp; the might of law displayed
Sometimes it is the soldier judging to protect his mate
Who silences the coward with a blade
And even those who others never try
Do often face a court of no appeal
They look like any other; that appearance is a lie
It covers up the guilt they always feel
Who better both to punish and atone
For crimes the law will never recognize
Than he who walks the worlds and bears his penance all alone
And looks for pardon in no other’s eyes
Oh, He who sees the criminal and crime
If from your heavn’ly portal you should look
And feel that this poor prisoner at last has served his time
Allow forgiveness to be brought to Book
