Justice

People oppressed;
Morals, expression, individuality,
Dismissed.

Atrocities abound;
Humanity ignores,
Civilisations destroyed.

Spectators in terror;
As the hungry are prosecuted,
And the weak persecuted.

Murderers go free;
While innocent are singled out,
Prejudice continues.

Positions of power;
Brought down by scandal and shame,
Justified by blame.

Righteous imprisoned;
Campaigners mistreated,
Miscarriage of justice.

– L.J. Lenehan –
