EXASPERATION

Injustice is a thief that takes tomorrow

leaving only grief and sorrow

on a pretext trigger fine

a gun will cross that line

and do the world a favor

proving he is braver than a child

who will never be a thug

for a day the press goes wild

but the court will give a shrug

unheard the words imploring

above the judge’s snoring

through the day

and the thief receives his glory

as the story goes away
