Hey everyone, I havent been on in a while so good to see u all again!
This is about an incident that happened at my school. one of my friends became the scapegoat for something horrible that had been going on for far too long...

On Justice

hysteria and hatred are ever-here
yet no one, yes, no one stands to fight
and so, young outcasts live in fear
afraid to speak for what is truly right

and monsters creep upon those in the night
who stand for virtue, honesty and law
who see the dirt-bloody world now lacks the light
that our savage tribal ancestors once saw

the blood runs red, deep and raw
the life-veins of humanity cease to flow
the sacrilidgous watch in horrid awe
as our earth falls to pieces from past seeds sowed

But lo! There's a scapegoat amidst the woe!
The one who stands alone, reveals their sin!
They butcher, they slice their mortal foe
hiding the shame harbored deep within

And so, remember, you sinners, G-d's kin,
blame not the bringers of Truth
let the new age of virtue, honesty, law win
and our world shall be repaired, in sooth
