Stanza Asterisk

Justice, who dares to weild your frightful sword?

Justice is not blind, she is blindfolded, but she holds

in her hands the scales and the sword.

She cannot see what those scales say.

She cannot see the necks those scales

have laid upon the block.

Justice, who places the feather

and the heart on your scales?

About johnsmithiiimxiii

John Smith, IIMXIII is the avatar of an award winning poet, artist, etc. who still lives in the Palouse country of the Pacific NW. He has not received much notice with his prose . . . but as his avatar, I hope that he keeps plugging along.
