A Corupt System

I cant believe how we get treated, when the system thinks we are defeated.
Usually its the people whom have led an unfair and unjust life.
So when it comes down to it, it feels as though they choose to twist the knife.
I know there are many mistakes that mess with peoples fate. When will
society awake and take some of the corruption from off our plate? I will wait
but I cant anticipate. I know the outcome will always be the same, and whose 
to blame because they need to be ashamed. This is peoples life's were taken
for granted, by rules and laws that remain slanted. If you have the money to
pay you can basically get away with anything, as long as you have the green,
they'll take you up under their left wing. If you are innocent till proven guilty
like they pretend that people are, don't you think that all are questions would 
be answered and our defense will take us far. Its overloaded case loads I 
suppose. Or simply people whom do not care. To be completely honest I am not
totally aware. All I can say is this, its the fairness of our rights that I will miss.
I wish the system would be dismissed, and relieve all of those that are now 
pissed. I can only hope and pray, that maybe on someday, they will have to 
pay and in turn be forced to live the way they made us in all this disarray!
