Judge ,Jury and Executioner

The verdict was reached

before you were even arrested ;

Evidence had been planted

before the crime itself took place ;

Witnesses recognised your distinctive features

though they’d never seen you before ;

Your DNA and fingerprints were discovered by

forensics who couldn’t find what they were looking for;

Clueless detectives and incompetent policing

led them unerringly to your door ;

Your accomplices though you had none

betrayed you to save themselves ;

As the toxic cocktail enters your veins

you can take comfort from the words of Saint-Just ;

Nature wouldn’t condemn an innocent man ,

clearly there’s been a mistake .

16th century
Justitia
Went blindfolded –
To view the truth.
Her left hand
Held double-edged sword –
To drive home reason and justice.
Her right hand
Held set of scales –
To load the subject’s ‘two sides’
On them and decide the outcome
Based on the needle’s direction.

21st century
Judiciary
Went wide-eyed –
To view the loophole.
Their left hands
Held double standard code –
To drive home corruption and injustice.
Their right hands
Held set of scales –
To load the subject’s ‘two sides’
On them and decide the payoff
Based on the needle’s direction.

Same
Justitia if gets life
In 21st century
Will be blindfolded –
To view the falsity.
Her left hand
Will hold double-edged sword –
To drive home disloyal’s blood and justice.
Her right hand
Will hold set of scales –
To load the judiciary’s ‘loop holes’
On one side and based on the needle’s direction
Destroy them to bring scales equal.
