Fiat Justitia Ruat Caelum - Poem by satbir bakshi
Fiat Justitia Ruat Caelum
(May justice prevail before the heavens fall)
The Goddess of Justice
Is wholly and truly blind
In my native land
That’s an indisputable fact.
I realized this when one fine morning
I understood the meaning of fear
When I heard the blare of the fox hunter’s sounds
For when they are chasing the poor bloody fox
It is wiser to be dressed as a hound.
In my fifty five winters of peeping in every nook
I have seen every scoundrel, lothario and crook
Go scot free and watch the clouds go by
While any misguided soul who vexes eloquent
At the injustice of it all………….
Is hauled in for contempt of court.
Salus Populi Est Suprema Lex
(The people’s welfare is the supreme law)
~ Dedicated to the memory of one and only Justice Nani Palkhwala
