Systematic Mills

Inside of this machine

Of wishes and of dreams,

Punishment and restitution, 

Hope of rehabilitation,

All humanity is lost.

Within this maze of statute,

This swamp of base ambition,

Where people have no face,

Just the role they play.

Victim, Perp, and Lawyer,

Learned, wizened Judge,

Enforcers of the peace,

Witnesses, the rest of us.

Dare we call this Justice?
