Dear Lady Justice,

 

You are here without a summons.

Voices insist you be taken

 

upstairs to crowds waiting

to watch you, hear you proclaim

 

their imperative. Refuse, at last,

dirty from use, long stationed in rooms

 

of churning bile and duty shirked.

Move outside now free as spring’s robins.

 

Have nothing of these scripted circuses.

Search for space not up for auction

 

by men who claim you without scales,

without blindfold. Rip off that gown,

 

grey, tattered, and go among trees

thin as girls’ legs. See small waving

 

fronds, the hands of children who need you

to pick them up right now and run.

OBLIVION

Oblivion hangs down on me.

peace treaty upon peace treaty

wars to massacres

colonisation or occupation

terrorism or murder

from the highest end of government

to the common man on the streets

since the beginning of time

maybe to the end

 perhaps that is the irony

it is oblivion in its true form

Oblivion:  The state of being unaware or unconscious of what is happening

BYe!
