Poems on "Legal"

Me Lord I Object

a poem by Sunil Khadawala

Me Lord I object to the frequent delays
I object to the tricks of the trade
I object to the victim becoming an object
Rather than a subject
I object to being subject
To the devious ploys of lawyers
I object to the corruption in our courts
I object to the inapt handling of the suspect
I object, me Lord to the frequent times
A lawyer objects
I object me Lord to the frequent granting of dates
On flimsy grounds
I object very strongly me Lord.
