Grappling with the broken pieces of our nation.

Justice Bound

Look Blind Justice,

Love may see with the mind

such that Cupid should be blind.

What does Lady Justice gain

from her sight being refrained?

Does this make her fair, or simply unaware?

Is she impartial or ignorant,

standing balanced in her judgement,

or made to sway within her cage?

Hope for freedom, bound and gagged.

Blinded as power drives U.S. mad.

Liberty and Justice,

two star crossed lovers

crossed off our check lists;

forgotten in a dream,

tossed into the murky deep

the lie of false freedom

is tied to their feet.

A broken promise,

Protect and Serve.

Only broken hearts and bones are preserved.

When doors are forced down and hanging open,

all that is left are pieces,

Broken.
