When we’re suspected of a crime, investigation starts.
A competent authority examines all the parts.
Though what appears at first to be the thing that will convict
through closer sight someone may find a reason to acquit.
But innocence from one offense does not mean we’re immune.
from doing wrong another time, and even very soon.
Called back again on evidence of some deficiency
it may be found that we’re unsound, incurring penalty.
