Justice Undone

This room held hope and promise
when it was first opened up
but bribes and collusion
arguments from shrewd lawyers
added up to injustice.

This room though no longer used
still witnesses to prejudice and lies
a jury in a hurry
a judge with bias
and justice undone.

This room is outdated, falling apart
Was it ever anything but 
a holding place between
a rock and a hard place?

    Reason, What a nice job of thinking outside the box here. I'll expect to see more or your work on the winner's list in the future. RAY
