Way of the world, not
vigilant enough the weak
grapples with problems

The scales of justice
Favors the rich who peddle
Influence and money

Where is the fairness
The deprived helplessly cast
aside and trampled

Written for 3Word Wednesday with words vigilant, helpless and trample and shared with Chev's CARPE DIEM #197 with prompt justice


  1. Awesome! Hank these are really nice and I think you're right. Justice isn't anymore that fair as once by King Solomon.

  2. life is certainly not fair...
    dont know it was ever promised to be
    those in power are, and we not
    it seems...

    nice verse sir hank.

  3. Yeah agreed, those friggin rich screw everyone else over indeed

  4. A lot of wisdom in this... so my belief in justice is not very high

  5. yes it doesn't seem fair does it Hank. This is a nice verse.

  6. A grave matter that you have grappled with here. "peddle
    Influence and money" explains a lot!!
