Justice – For Trayvon B. Martin

July 17, 2013


I wrote this poem in 1996. I can’t recall what event prompted it, but it is even more relevant today because presumably we have moved forward …

Justice…

White justice
Black justice

Rich justice
Poor justice

White rich justice
Black poor justice

Ethnic Race justice
Religion different justice

The best justice
There is no justice

Justice is prescriptive
Justice is subjective

Justice has a face
Faces are selectively unjust

Thereforeā€¦
Justice can not be
Just

1996
