Changes Aren’t Accepted

Changes aren’t accepted when

 they come as a surprise.

We hold to traditions when

 we can’t believe our eyes.

Even when the one who changed

  presents herself and testifies,

we maintain our doubting ways;

  of “trust but verify.”


Expert panels are convened

to rule on every case.

Technicalities are sought, 

and even rumors traced.

Verdicts can get twisted when

the prejudices have been nursed.

Even expert witness is

denied when someone has a verse.
