On the evening of 25th Sept. 2017, and the next morning, in the newspapers there was a heading that gripped my attention “Too Clever for Jail” it was about a young Oxford university medical student who stabbed her boyfriend with a bread knife but she was spared jail. Why ? well the judge said she was “too clever” for jail. No! I am not kidding. I felt compelled to write this poem on my way to work on the morning of 26th Sept.
