Equality Before the Law


Please Help ZNet



 

 

 

 

Equality before the law

Is a fine idea,

But propagated unequally

By an unequal media.

 

And judges are wise not to speak

In mechanical voice;

Justice demands that lordships weigh

Who stacks the dice.

 

Most citizens know their place

In the scheme of things;

Most are pedestrians,

A third float on wings.

 

Justice wears a bandana

All across her eyes,

Too embarrassed to observe

How the lay of the land lies.
