Chasing the Ghosts of Justice

Chasing the Ghosts of Justice ⓒ by Donna Rae Lands

Chasing the Ghosts of Justice, hidden from view…

Nights of wanting and haunting…surely overdue…

Counterfeit and stolen names…nothing surreal…

Changing seasons for varied reasons…

Games of shame…and stabs of pain…

Seeking their fortune and seeking their fame…

Lying and denying…spying every day…

She wails from her broken heart but who would know…

Only the dances healed her stolen soul…

It was truly a joke whenever she spoke…

Choosing her balance… with her eyes closed to grace…

Ghosts of injustice slap her… across the face…

The genteel elegance of the highest kind…

No virtues of honor…cowardice were chosen as their dignity sign.

Better to love and instruct…than to confuse and to corrupt…

The distinguished merit and badges of some sort…

Granting the prizes, labels, and decisions of some courtly tort.

The civil way to be… for all to see…are chasing the Ghosts of Justice of today’s proper PC.

Satire, wit, and comedy seats are taken by participants, who are ever so loud…

They laugh at whoever shall wear the golden crown… amongst the people in the crowd…

Riding in the cloud of deception…

The bells were not rung-no trumpet sounds were found at the purple reception…

It was all a web of lies…Stripped while the naked wood cries…

Walking and talking became their je ne sai quoi….

Standing and ranting- preaching their rah, rah

Twas entertaining for the clapping people of the ta ta…and the ha ha…

Decency lost, all was embellished-whilst the Decorum was so greatly sought…

Clarification of the bottom of the barrel was to rot and it was always-always for naught.
