Mob Rule

"Let me be and set me free," the Man in voice decreed after giving an opinion for which the mob did not agree. "I will not let you judge me now or enter up a plea and damn your suppositions for you're all too blind to see and if a man among you honors God, then take your hands off me." They only smacked their lips with a sanctimonious hint of glee as they hung a Man they did not know from the nearest tree. And justice served was justice had in their reality. The End *Entry into the triple rhyme poetry contest *Sponsored by Beth Evans *June 26/2020 *For those interested. I will be posting my cartoon 'Bob's your Uncle' on my homepage. A new one will appear every second day or so.

Lovely poem David - mobs think they can win, perhaps they can, but it must be a peaceful protest, no matter if some are rebellious, they must be made to leave, so that the protest can be taken seriously. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

G'day David ... Minorities in religion, colour, race, politics, can become victims very quickly for being who or what they are. Your poem is top class in explaining this - thank you David - Lindsay

David..my best wishes in the contest. Mob rule so popular in the USA! We do have laws but as these are shredded and justice is subjective, only a matter of time that we will be another mob ruled, Socialist twin of Venezuela. The statue destruction and refusal to recognize past history? A sign we are going down the toilet. Pangiota xx

Justice is all a matter of perspective, I guess, and politics too, lest one ever forget. Well-penned, David! ~ Gershon

does not sound like justice to me, but justice and injustice is different to whom judged it... Nice rhymes my friend.
