To the Lady of Justice

a poem by Karthik Sankar

Blindfolded you are
To give equality
But blindfolded you are
Towards this cruelty
Of reality
For no matter who the judge
No matter who the accused
No matter why no matter what
There is no justice
And blindfolded you are.
Oh! Lady of justice
Remove thy blindfold
And then you can see
What justice You hear
Is nothing but bland lies
From brutal murderers.
It is struggle of the meek
And victory for the rich.
For, the power of wealth
Pervades all.
And blindfolded you are
Assuming there is assurance
Of impartial justice.
Oh! How blind you are?
