Allegory of Justice

He not keen but not excused

She was thin yet no… abused



I would have done?

Whose weight who won?

Reason is wright

He flaunts flamboyance

She, flurries fragrance

They lure!

We cry!

I should have done

Whose like The Son

Fair temple man

He’ll wound the sword

She’ll hold the strife

They tell –

We know –

Now, I go and do

Keen, you and I must be too

Just will be force


James Low, Puteri Eleni, and Nadeem Rafiq, KL. (Mostly James).
