Love’s Injustice ( Poem )

Bronze Statue of Lady Justice

Bronze Statue of Justitia

You can actually get one of these bronze statues of Justitia, the Roman goddess of Justice, on Amazon! Another version comes with a clock.  Perfect for a judge’s chamber.  Anyway, another poem about unrequited love:

In this unjust world,
Wrong is right and bad is good
And the liar and the thief
Flourish like vacant lot weeds.

Justice is a travesty –
Not only blind, but deaf.
Defenseless stand the innocent
Against the onslaught of the guilty.

And love, so pure and true,
Remains scorned and unrequited.
