Justice - Poem by Tony Adah

It has become an albatross
And its delay leads
To its denial
Men wait without its appearance
Even when it comes
Its course is thwarted like
An aircraft in bad weather.

It is dangling between
The truth and falsehood
And attorneys make purchases
Of it like peanuts
Judges sell it like pure water sachets
By truant school children
On the dusty streets.

It has grown wings
And flown away
From the reach of citizens
And oppressors have added
Feathers to these wings
And far it has flown.
