Societal (In)Justice - (V) Moving On

The alleged crime, now confessed  
apologized for, begrudgingly forgiven  
in dual courts of public opinion and private blogs

You are free to go, you are declared irrelevant  
Gather your trampled reputation and leave  
It is impossible to erase the indelible stain  
seemingly forever attached to your name  
Yet the need to move on doesn’t change

The fifth and final poem (for now) regarding the current cultural phenomenon to 'cancel' a public figure of perceived or actual misdeeds.
