Truth and Justice

Veritas = VAIR-ee-taws 
Aequitas = EK-wee-taws 

I recently watched the Boondock Saints, and their speech at the Courtroom wrote this poem
for me

Truth
Justice
Veritas
Et Aequitas
Two principles which every one lives by

Now do not kill, do not rape, do not steal
All men and faiths
Can  agree
Never
Sin

Evil
Beckons
Those of us
Who do not know
So shepherds we shall be, for thee my Lord

Do not corrupt yourself, for I shall come
If you ignore
My warning
And you
Fall

    I have not seen the Boondock Saints, Molly, but your poem is filled with so much positive inspiration that perhaps I should! I love the poem and especially the way you use this challenging form. Best wishes, Carolyn
