“Guilty”

Forty-five of forty-eight
Sandusky learns his fate.
Penn State coach, child abuser.
Justice for each accuser.

Jail sentence in his future
Very long one to be sure.
Victims vindicated now
As best their pasts will allow.

Peace.

(Suggested by “Sandusky Found Guilty“, by Jeremy Roebuck, Jeff Gammage, Susan Snyder, in The Philadelphia Inquirer, June 23, 2012.)
