Two Faces Of Justice.... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

HOW cruel could they be
those seals of the seas
burying a dead man's body
whose left eye is a hole
into the Arabian Sea

IT is not according to the law
and customs and religion

This is foul and horrendous
To the hearts of the faithful
The sorrow is and must be
Tremendous

YET how most cruel was once he
too
burying thousands of screaming bodies in a split second on a building
exploding into dusts
as planes hijacked crashed on its side

Thousands and thousands of other lives
sacrificed for an ideology
of terror
still nameless on the roll
call of
Untimely deaths

And even the those still living
They who live everyday in Fear
Those who travel in air
In a hundred anxieties bear

Still the unfairness reigns
One body swallowed finally by the sea

On the other hand
Some thousand hands and eyes or so
still unrecoverable
From the terrorism of
history of the bombs

Those nameless still hungry for justice
Those grieving to the more
Because the losses are still unbearable
