When injustice is committed,
In particular when committed on us,
We have two right duties
To self, above all:
Two right duties, I’d say.
One fairly depends on personal good:
The should of recovery;
The would of happy be.
But the second is quite a different tale:
The second is why this all of us
Should all these battles – ugly! – fight.
The second, in fact, is made of two:
- The truth that severe must be revealed, so injustice against individual doesn’t – cruel! – repeat.
- The truth that obvious must be pursued, for that committed against specific individual never does stop, just because.
Two conditions quite clear, then, on the reverse of circumstance:
To change fact and throw in the trowel –
Of all this deathly dig.
I wonder if ever it shall be possible to:
- admit the truth and repair damage done;
- assure in convincing manner that done shall never be done, thus again.
A pact of ungentlemen?
The only kind these days.
A pact of unladies?
The only lies we – now – convey.
