Who Started the Fights

Well that's the ultimate
question of justice
tried here in a court
with only a jury
and no judge.

There are no witnesses
and I am subpoenaed
to appear against myself.
There are obligatory confessions
to be made and small winces

of self defense to be offered
to unsympathetic neighbors and friends.
This trial will nudge
livability back toward aging,
mattering little what gets said.
