I’ve been studying justice.
It’s been hard.
I could not find too much of it.
I looked in the courts
But it wasn’t to be found –
Only the tiniest bit.
I searched the battlefields.
There was none.
All lost in the fog of true grit.
I hunted for it on the streets,
Searched high and low
Justice had taken a hit.
It seems we don’t value justice
We have no wish to be fair.
We’re happy to tolerate poverty
And injustice everywhere.
Justice is just for the rich.
They make sure they get their share.

The courts do not dispense justice. They undergo procedure according to the law. It very much depends on how good a barrister you can afford. The courts protect the state. They require scapegoats as deterrents.
Violence in war, by tyrants, by gangs, by the authorities, overrides all justice.
We live in a world of our own design. We have created massive inequality, exploitation and poverty.
These things have not come about by chance. They were designed.
The powerful choose injustice, unfairness and selfishness. They think they deserve it.
