# Justice Delayed...Justice Denied

A nation raped…
Mute, stunned, indignant
World watched, ashamed…

Cruelty, hate, evil
(Put to shame, even devil)
Drives the mentally ill…

Justice delayed
While we, a messiah await
Or resigned to fate…

Does God Wait
For good sense to prevail…
And love conquers hate…

Justice denied
Shocked, aggrieved wail…
While accused hide…

Who does one blame?
Deeply reflect,
And introspect….

    My friend Sathyanarayana ji is a practising lawyer himself! He too will agree that
    in our country 'justice' is for only those who can afford it, since the courts keep
    draging each case to bleed those who seek justice! Judiciary requires a revamp! !
