She never met the jury.
She never met the judge.
She only met the fury
Of a community with a grudge.

She never had a fair trial.
She never went to court.
She never had a defence
To offer her support.

She was never even told
The true nature of her crime,
But the mob got there way,
So now she serves her time.

Relentless misogyny
Brought her to her knees.
When she raised issues of equality
They spat back at all her pleas.

They say we are progressing,
But just an hour spent online
Can show a society regressing
Back to a much darker time.
