Good take on the topic. I like the sequence from crime to judgment to mercy.
This is wonderful! Congratulations on ranking 11th in level one!

great poem i love the rhythm and the simplicity of the rhyme which contrasts with the serious and tragic subject matter. I like the way you start with the man in cell one, and write as observer talking to the world about him and then turn to address the poem to the "man in cell one" himself. reminds me of a courtroom and the writer being a judge.
there was one point when you muddled the his/your in the line about the wife. I think this should have been "your wife" because you were talking to the "man in cell one" then.
well done on your placing well up in the top 1/3rd of the field
