Planet Out of Balance

Having this disdain
For the ruthless has
Inundated my brain.

For though passive,
I’m not toothless and
Shall rain torrential on

Your callous charade.

For I’ve a strong affinity
For justice and to let the
Gavel fall where it may.

And so I blame you for
An injustice perpetrated
On our planet and upon

A humanity in disarray.
