Justice speaks the truth


Justice is blind

with ears covered

Mercy is shocked

with mouth covered


Justice gives nothing

and takes it all.

Mercy takes nothing

and gives it all.


Mercy listens with respect

and convenes with a fiat

Justice will not hear of it

and adjourns with a quid pro quo


Mercy opens a dialogue,

“Here I am”

Justice closes the book

“Guilty” or “Not Guilty”


Mercy truly listens
