Justice (Or The Lack Of It)

Justice has a new face
A face that makes one cry
That stifles truth and honesty
And makes the children cry
That leaves them feeling empty
That starves them; leaves them cold
That takes the clothes right off their back
Deprives them not of gold
But of a faith in reason
That adults really care
For justice gives the answer it’s
A real cruel world out there
And that those who are in power
Allow dishonesty
By letting off the bad in life
To hurt them constantly

The current legal system in the UK is failing our children allowing perpetrators to slip through the net despite behaviours that add up to neglect and abuse.  With the loss of legal aid, the government has left thousands without access to fair access in the court system and without the power to untangle the mesh of red tape and bureaucracy in the current system and the lexicon of legal speak, the said perpetrators are getting off scot free, walking away with smug contempt to continue their abusive and neglectful behaviours!  This is evidently called reform! What a mess!

The Aggressors

Ahead a-top the barren hill
With grave of child in tomb
Taken ahead his time by hate
His soul snuffed in full bloom

His life taken so miserably
By words, by deeds, by they
Who persecute and strip him down
In the clear light of day

They, that twist deep in the knife
To maim and pierce his heart
Neglecting him and calling names
Sheer spite that they impart

Their inner loathing quite outplayed
No kindness; so forlorn
Compassion gone as they beat him
And steel his future dawn

And who are they by venom’s might
With terror constantly
The aggressors who wear him down
Til he hangs from that tree
