Once upon a time there was justice
But it was so long gone
that nobody believed in it

So one day a search was mounted
Files were disturbed
Wigs dusted off
Gowns shaken out

Every corner of every court
looked at and checked over

No sign was found until
lacking any other place to look,
a check was made
inside the head of one
who dared to hope
to find it there

Searching in amongst the cells
long dark with age
and atrophied with lack of use
a small glow was seen

A glow of conscience
And hiding close
within this glow
was justice
