The Tyrannical Nine

It is fair that you wear
the color of mourning
for we mourn the loss
of your integrity, dignity, and honor,
and glibly you wear the blood
of the lives you so
cavalierly destroy.

It is right you wear
the color of mourning
for you have disgraced
your duty, and slaughtered
our rights so smugly.

It is just that you wear
the color of mourning
for within your courts
all justice as died,
and you deprived
the people of there
free will.

But though the color
of mourning suits you,
you should be stripped
of your robes, denied
the black of your office.

You should be marched
through the cities
clad only in your birthright
and whipped as you pass
those you have arrogantly

    Poignant poetry... well done.

    black are the days
    and black their deeds
    when politics wrests
    the law as weeds
