South African Justice

South African Justice

They dragged him hand-cuffed by a van

This innocent and screaming man;

But not by thugs this was the law

And just to even up the score;

A scape-goat he feet bound in chain

His body wracked with shocking pain;

What justice this out in the street

All witnesses admit defeat;

Outnumbered they by officers

Denial of the truth deters

A follow-up to right the wrong

The officers all go along

With lies to cover up this crime

For them the truth not worth a dime;

Author's Notes:
Fortunately - - footage of this taxi-driver's murder went viral on YouTube and subsequently eight police officers now face murder charges...A.M.
