The Good Samaritan ~ A True Story
The Good Samaritan
She heard a din across the way
and acted without thought...
had no inkling what a web
was lurking there, unsought.
She was drawn, by decency,
to offer up her aid...
but, ended up the victim of
a misconstrued charade.
There was a fight out in the yard
her only aim assistance...
but, when she tried to intervene...
she met with great resistance.
Threats were thrown with punches
so she thought to call the law...
and what ensued would find her butt
locked up, in quite a yaw!
She reached into her pocket for
the cell phone that was there,
to find herself in handcuffs...
with no weapon to declare.
They claimed she pulled a gun that night,
in fact, it was a phone...
though evidence was absent...
the cops insisted she atone.
She'd never been arrested
before that fateful night...
but being the good samaritan
led her to jail, stage right...
Eventually the charges dropped,
and then, the case dismissed...
but not before she went to jail
for just trying to assist!
