Poetry Friday

by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Enthroned upon the mighty truth,
Within the confines of the laws,
True Justice seeth not the man,
But only hears his cause.

Unconscious of his creed or race,
She cannot see, but only weighs;
For Justice with unbandaged eyes
Would be oppression in disguise.

Sadly the jurors were not blind and some not without an agenda. PRM
