The Culprit

What shall we call the malcontent
a blackguard sneaky loafer
a social snide incompetent
or softly, softly gopher
Little hope for retribution
at such absent social flair
lacking honest contribution
from a riffraff without care
Showing little sign of penitence
bereft of any blame
A hoodlum’s life of reticence
in a queasy hall of shame

It doesn’t do to ponder long
on punishment and crime
for the rising cost of justice
is the culprit’s waste of time
