Political Verse

Justice For All
by Dee Newman

When our leaders are allowed to commit
Even one crime against humanity
Despite any and all legitimate
External threats to our security,
When they are permitted to circumvent
The rule of law with no consequences
For their illegal actions and prevent
Adjudication of their offenses,
When torture is excused and defended
As "enhanced interrogation techniques"
And other war crimes misrepresented
As “policy disputes” or “leftist critiques"
         Then justice for all has been suspended
         And our precious democracy has ended.
