  Why should you believe me,

 When the jury agreed,

 Iím as guilty as hell,

And itís jail that I need,


  Yes five years in prison,

For something I didnít do,

 And the court called me liar,

 Although what I said was true ,


 And youíll be no different,

 I can tell by your eyes,

 Before I open my mouth,

Youíll think Iím telling lies,


 And I cannot blame you,

 Because Iíd think that way,

If I hadnít been there,

On that particular day,


 I was down at the tavern,

And about to go home,

When she came on over,

And said are you drinking alone,


 She said can I join you,

And I bought her a wine,

Then we sat there talking,

Until closing time, 


She told me her husband,

 Had gone out of town,

 And it would be quite a while,

Before he was around, 


And a woman gets lonely,

And a woman has needs,

Just like a man does,

And of course I agreed, 


So I walked her home,

 And I guess itís a fact,

I leaned over to kiss her,

And she kissed me back, 


And it wasnít goodbye,

That she said in her kiss,

She said do you want to come in,

And I couldnít resist,


 We made love on the sofa,

 Made love on the floor,

But she suddenly stopped,

With a noise at the door, 


Oh god thatís my husband,

 And she rose in a haste,

Slipped on the carpet,

And injured her face, 


Then as if sheíd gone crazy,

She started to scream,

Pulled at her blouse,

Until it tore at the seams, 


She punched me and scratched me,

 She was crying real tears,

I held her wrists to stop her,

 But then her husband appears,


 With a guy from his office,

And I couldnít escape,

She ran over to them,

And she starts screaming rape, 


They saw the bruise on her face,

 And the scratch on my chest,

The state of her blouse,

 And imagined the rest, 


Well they gave me a beating,

Then with their anger appeased,

They left me on the floor,

 While they rang for the police,


 Oh I know what youíre thinking,

Iím a liar, a nonce,

Well thatís no surprise,

Itís the usual response, 


Why would she lie,

Sheís refined, upper class,

While Iím just a fellow,

That works welding cars, 


Well you think what you want to,

Go on have your doubts,

Would she send me to prison,

So that he wonít find out, 


While heís gone she gets lonely,

 And searches the streets,

No, look at her sheís lovely,

 Whoíd believe that woman cheats,


 Whoíd believe that sheís devious,

 Behind those angel eyes,

And when she said that I raped her,

She told nothing but lies.

wow. I felt and saw every word of this. I know the type of woman this is. Has everything but has nothing. nice piece.

Oh so sad especially when it is a lie told on another.
Heart breaking although I absolutely do not like rapist that is for sure.
It is just as bad when someone accuses another of such a defiling act!

This is a most compelling account, Steve. It's a bit strange to see it from "the other side." Certainly, you've made it real and have elicited thought. Thank you. Love and peace,

Sounds like the best one could hope for was that the bar they were in had video tape. It is an interesting view of another side of the story. Sadder still I can picture women I have known in my life doing this. Lady J
