The rolls of justice in the sentence of tyranny
Mockery of equality, making light of infamy
When the weights of equity leans to the right
Fairness disappears, dimming the light
Creature of bias screams to the deaf
One last hope, one last shot to the death
Caution is futile in the face of despair
You light a fire fighting the darkness
Last straw of hope pushing the harness
Rules are changing, so are the games
No more linear in the curve of curses
When the players are foul &
The fields are rigged
Justice light out, making run to defame
The deed is done, silence is surreal
Wheels of law drop dead in middle
Shield of lies trumps the pale of light
In the pyre of equality, prejudice screams with delight
This is pretty evident when the law is skewed, moulded and twisted to suit a certain ideology, dispensation or in general the power holders. In the fight between rationalism and fundamentalism, latter seems to have taken a giant leap towards achieving a singular, stupid and silent society. All of us are at fault, but the greatest fault likes at the institutions of justice which give them legitimacy or at least tacit support by means of delaying, subverting or destroying the core values of justice.
This has now turned into a global issue with a large number of nations witnessing the rise of fundamentalism and the governments and justice institutions playing witness as a silent spectator. If i may draw a silver lining here, it might be that, now we may realize that we are all together in this and the time is right to give up on our petty issues and start working towards real, tangible and everyday issues.
Ah! What wishful thinking.
