NaPoWriMo Day 4: Justice.

Justice is a fickle whore
and privilege is her pimp.
A diamond is the symmetry of two pyramids
with society encased within the erupting speckles of illusion.

 

The underclass are a class upon themselves,
a paradoxical percentile
– a criminal lacking refinement is still a criminal.
A gentleman that is not gentle is no gentleman.

Civilisation crumbles as an anthill avalanche
is brought forth by a magnifying glare.
Prometheus’s gift is also a curse,
so too can be said of justice.

 

One should not defend the indefensible,
and yet they do.
When civil matters are given neither purse nor pertinence
then civilisation itself is a cruel, hypocritical jape.
