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.
