JUSTICE?

Justice no longer exists in this country
as it did when we were taught in school.
Now it's the gangsters who control the system
we have professional judges calling us fools.

They can take a symbol men have died for
turn it into a country club joke for members.
When last was justice the topic of motivation
an archaic ideal few if any serve or remember.

Sitting high in an alcoholic befuddlement
denying the law as it's read in black and white.
This so-called judge doesn't know his own law
he's wrong on the bench, is this just or right?

How can a citizen be called fool by a judge
in this land of justice where all men are free?
How can an elite ruling class ass pass judgment
when our own law he's too drunk to believe?

In proper person doesn't mean fool, Judge
it means you have shut us out with your costs.
Government; I suggest you all listen carefully
it is not a fool talking,  it's your boss.

Methinks you are angry? Is this about a specific case? I am not sure I go along with such a general statement, so I will assume it's specific! I'd like to know.....
