THE UNCALLED JUDGES

 


The uncalled judges, undignified dignitaries, 

The self-acclaimed and self-authorised  unprofessional lawyers,

Always casting accusing glares, 

Pointing accusing fingers, 

Rolling their eyes prominently and twisting their huge lips, 

Not minding the details but quick to announce faults, 

Quick to jump to conclusions, 

Just to satisfy their premonitions and hypothesis, guess preferably because, hypothesis is an educated guess.


You ain't perfect either, 

Your unjust judgment makes you more guilty, 

Who conferred power on you to pass judgement?

Or authority on you to pass the verdict on your suspects? 

You only amplify other people's cases as diversional therapy. 

Unconvering their slips to cover your woes,

Look! Youve got black garment on, but your victim's got few stains on their apparels. 

You point one accusing finger at them but the other four point back at you,  boldly and threatening.

Here's my judgement : Go and sin no more, 

It's time to grow judges, 

Time to grow in love and compassion for others, 

Mistakes are indispensable part of life which is alien to no one, 

Hold a hand, touch a heart, speak a word, 

For all we've really got is each other.
