When the glove is on the other hand
How valuable is the life that's cut short?
The perpetrator when cornered in that 'rabbit hole'
with both barrels pointed in the face
begs for life yet did not see his victim's plight -
his reality.

When justice fails to unearth the truth
Where is the balance in the scales,
who gets priority?
for though the hearts and mind unite
such pain is left behind ...
and those who grieve, no consolation can there be.

Fundamentals of the legality dictates
fair trial be gained, confusion's left behind.
travesty and fate dictates that human form and mind
can wallow in deceitful victory.

Very hard at time of trial
To see through hearts that lie,
confound, confuse ...false messages we see
and when the verdict of this case arise
Who's there to say what's just?
The crime against humanity comes through
and turns us into dust!

Lovely poet
and humanitarian.... great poem ...

Thank you Jem for appreciating this piece. Came from nowhere. Your points and stars are good! Keep running low. As long as I have enough to keep posting my pages from that short story. Think I'll put away my pen after the story is finished.

Isn't that the truth!!!!
I don't know where it comes from but do hope that it keeps on coming. Oftimes a trial doesn't bring justice to anybody except the lawyers. I say that even though my son who recently died was a lawyer. And to contradict what I just said, the lawyers don't always get justice either. Doing jail time is supposed to be punishment but, other than not being able to leave, the convicted often have a much better life than they had before. Computers, telephones, television, 3 meals a day, free health care. This is called punishment?? Maybe believing an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth is actually a good thing -- maybe not. I don't know where mine come from either, Kitty, but I believe it is from a higher source and I just hold the pencil. Thought provoking and well written. Sarah

Thanks Sarah for your visits. I too have legal people an both sides - family and in laws but that doesn't stop me from pointing out the injustices i see in this world. Good to know there are those who have the same gripes - though this write is not fashioned by their judgement. You could enter into a discussion lasting hours that's why I shy away from certain subjects.
The ink is still flowing Sarah. i feel sometimes I should stem it but hey, keep it flowing as long as readers enjoy. You have a good one!
