Will A Divided House Stand In any Land

@one must have lived on both' sides of justice to be fully There are so many languages' There are oh! So many plans' But, in this day of confusion.. Can it really stand.... ------ Their are those who live in the shadow There are those who are on top! Many have faith in the interest of justice I say some-times' it is merely just a plot! ----- Now think about that ---- ---------- Do you live in a state of justice Or in a state of police... Where your strife is minimal And pales' beyond belief --------- Can you go out at ? ...night! With-out subscribing of your plight Hence: the fear of going out at night ------- This reflects' the type of judgement That which you subscribe too.... A issue shrouded in black and white A deadly combination of the many social wrongs' or rights'... Where the truth comes' to the light ---- As a human body lay riddled in the heat and stench of the night.... -------- If you are stopped in a store to-day Do you expect to make it home? -Or- Are you subjected to the night? Where justice is swift a constant norm! - Only... To end up at the business end of justice...! To the end of justice....! contrary to your life.... Only to be pondered upon as a creature in that laboratory of life... Where you your-self have just payed The supreme price from a flash of justice That threatens' to end your life... .......... Where some-one else in his unique ......since of justice amend to take your life (Some-call it a snap decision only... it is .......not such a snap to take another life) later deemed to be call a mishap in the name of protecting life I still say' maybe we are acting on a little bad advice ----- justifiable murder In the name of our Constitution.... Needless too say, Is this the best solution? Who's constitution dare I choose? Your life choked-off, filled full of holes' With a truth slowly delivered.... only God knows' just exactly What has just transposed... .... And the reason why so many should die.... ------ Who's brand of justice would you survive... In that vain' instance Just to stay alive.... -Or- which do you care.... to defend? Would it be attributed to the feat of justice Or will it be just us? Or to the determination of the life of just another Young innocent man..... Or that breath of justice From which he did truly depend... To abide and to trust in.... The accomplishment of man... Awh! Yes, The truth depends' on the end of the sword That which is in your hand..... With the meter of justice that we are willing to defend.... That brand of justice that which you may call upon for the sake of your fellow man! Poet/Author Gary Fields Censored in Contrast

Hi Gary, I don't like the way justice works around here. They cannot afford anything. I wish, we could shake some real deal round here. This is powerful...Linda
