A Man Is Missing
A man is missing, he’s been taken away;
Where is he gone and what did he say.
Where did they take him and did they say why;
As he was leaving I heard him cry.
What’s that you say, prison for what;
You must be some kind of a nut.
I know this man I know him well;
He doesn’t belong in a prison cell.
A crime was commited and now he’s on jail;
But he has no money he can’t pay his bail.
You say that the courts will give him a trial;
But in this court room will justice smile.
In this court room will justice be fair;
Can anyone tell me dose anyone care.
What will his wife and children do;
Because of this justice must they hurt too.
What if he’s innocent and I know this to be;
Because he has no money will they still set him free.
He can’t pay for justice so he must do the time;
Being broke in the courts can be the real crime.
