– has to exist –

Justice has to exist.

We would not know the bitter flavor
labeled unfairness if there was not a
sweet fruit named justice.
Please inform me why…
why more than ever we’re being served
rotted helpings of unjust actions –

punishment against the innocent,
condemnation towards the helpless,
disdain directed at the unique –

where are the rich rewards to balance
the poor pain unfairly suffered?

No excuse comes to mind for this lack of

or this abundance of corruption.

Are you not starving?

I know I am.
