Justice


When justice stagnants
Only the fool hearted,
Will contemplate pursuing
Even the most
Just of causes.

When justice stagnants
Only the brave will seek retribution
For sins committed against them
And their kinsmen
Can any gleams of sovereignty exist

Where justice takes a tea break
And when justice decides to standstill
Will any sanity prevail?
Can any unity
Ever be restored?

When justice stagnants,
The supposed saviours
Become the enslaver,
Who then will stand up
To refuse for the people

When justice stagnants
The law makers
Become peace detractors
Creating laws meant not to ensureharmony,
But to bring woo to the masses

When justice stagnants
The will seek to devour
Those they once vowed to protect.
Stagnation of justice
The eleventh plague not just
A spiritual fantasy but a present reality.
