Conviction

Conviction

her convictions
principles
the foundations of character
the comely
the tough but charming
side of stubborn
that make her 
the prisoner
the convict
or her own 
stubborn idiocy

a genuine intelligence
willfully
substituted
subdued
by convictions
a principle
far heavier
than any sense
better than common

the intelligence
of 3 simple steps forward
covered instead
by a single step
of emotion
with idiotic
lazy conviction
filling 
the remaining
steps

fistfights
over naive interpretations
justified
by the principle
of conviction
as judge
jury
and jailer
of her weak-willed
pussyfoot
intelligence
beaten
submitted
but aching to show her
so much more
than her overbearing convictions
want her
to know

the rush
the heroism
the physical fortitude
in a clawing
scratching
hair pulling
cat fight
with contention
the proof of character
that cold
cowardly intelligence
even in truth
can never
supply

conviction's fray
another misdemeanor
sentencing
reason
to solitary
tyrannical conviction
starving
raping
isolating
intelligence
its moans
muffled
by the hollers and bawls
of the character
in cat fights
biting
spitting 
ripping
in desperate need
kill or be killed
for the sake
of all 
she is
