Simple Justice

Posted: August 31, 2014 in Uncategorized, writing

Mob in action passions in motion

civic pride gets satisfied.

Court in session come to disorder.

Let the guilty step forward prove what they can

let the victims rejoice to redress their grievance.

Now soldiers tremble

no orders today

for once we the people will have our way.

Bring forth the condemned whose number is up

let the jury’s fury hold sway.

The guilty kneel their heads shorn and pale

then doused with gasoline are contritely burned.

Resolve melts away

seared animals howl.

We take satisfaction.

Their pain is testament to their guilt

their charcoaled flesh conclusive proof

crime is a point of view

held by the many against the few.
