Justice


Justice is the province of god's work,
Society's attempts are proven never true
In applying justice or emulating god's work.
Invoking in the mind is by nature what we do,
Enacting is a gamble through and through.

Willing revenge comes easily to us all;
Seeing the guilty mocking justice's case:
Feeling loss and helpless, being in the thrall.
Look fate deep in its wise old face
And reflect all actions leave a trace.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
