Another Victim

a poem by Jayati

Someone commits a crime
Another one gets the blame.

Someone earns the dime
Another one pays for the same.

Someone hatch offences
Another one decapitates, falls.


Someone’s guilt, annoyance and
Another one’s innocence, court-protocols

Someone indoors or outdoors
Appeal, lobby, chance, and these laws

Crimes, justice, and punishments
Sometimes another one the victim is.
