– 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
justice…

or this abundance of corruption.

Are you not starving?

I know I am.
