Third Strike

When they ask

why I no longer practice law

 

When they praise me for

becoming a teacher, for

leaving “all that money” to

work in “one of those under-performing schools”

 

When they wonder what

criminal defense was really like

 

I recall a client

who was sentenced, with me by his side,

35 years to Life

     (may apply for parole only after 29.75 years)

 

for selling

seven dollars worth of crack cocaine

to a cop

 

It’s been nineteen years
