Just One Question

The man sitting at the table looked nervous.  His lawyer leaned over and whispered something to him.  It seemed to put him at ease. He then approached the witness.  “Did you get a look at the man on the motorcycle?”

“No, he was already wearing a helmet by the time I saw him.”

“So, it could have been anyone on that motorcycle?”

“I suppose, but I always saw him…”

“No further questions your honor.”

The lawyer sat down and whispered to his client “So, much for their irrefutable evidence from the only witness. Good thing you always wear your helmet.”

Burned Out

we put ourselves on trial
in oh so many ways
judging ourselves harshly
about the way we feel each day
and should we stop and rest
it feels like it’s a crime
putting our feet up to relax
for just a short time
we need to think about ourselves
and how we burn our fuse
for if we over do it
there will be nothing of us to use
