Poetic Injustice

Justice is blind, though

inherently judgmental.

My verdict awaits.

COVID culls with dispassion

guilty and guileless alike.

  2. Invisible, deadly, and… dispassionate. The worst kind of killer perhaps.

    Well done! There is no subjectivity nor discretion in the mindless culling by the covid, which is nothing like the court system or human justice in general.

    Very well written… when a pandemic hits all are equal for the first time. Covid knows no class!

    The juxtaposition of “guilty and guileless” leaves the reader wondering if they are different people, or the same. Are you contrrasting? or conflating. Really nice.
