The Burden Of Justice

Poem

Justice is mentioned glibly, yet

Many a time it fails,

Casting a shroud of disbelief —

The distrust it entails.

When justice bears its burden

To propel the progress of living,

It enters into a covenant of trust,

Through a process of taking and giving —

A process far “above the salt,”

Falling not in neglect,

But steering straight toward its goal,

In terms of its effect.

 A prejudiced panel of jurors

May not be one that counts

For or against an accused,

 Leading to a questionable judgment

 Biased and abused.

  The mills of justice that are set

   To grind are widely known,

    The grinding may be futile

     When away the truth is blown.

     True justice sets itself apart

      From a judge and a jury who

       Can only pave a way to see

        The burden carried through.
