Can justice be delayed under any circumstances?

Numerous cases can be sighted for instances

Can that not be amounted as justice denied?

Well, conscious should always bite if it is laid

Constitution enshrined for liberty and freedom

Forefathers too considered and thought it as wisdom
Sacrifice made for freedom struggle should not go as waste
To live with true freedom was need of an hour and taste

Still many loop holes remain to be plugged

System is facing criticism and it is wholly bugged

Justice is sold as revealed with emergence of new facts
it is cleverly wrapped in words with simple tact

Under official ret act, nothing can be made public or revealed
Under the oath of secrecy it is cleverly concealed

Normal man can’t dream for getting immediate relief
Loosing faith and trust as mark of disbelief

Innocents are sometimes hung for nothing

Trial summary drags on for years to prove something

History teeters and goons rule the scene

it has been made laughing stock which is never witnessed or seen

Conscience like things has remained on paper

Evidences or approver turn hostile and proof is tempered

Solitary examples shine and keep the system alive

Does the system require honest trial for self and to be revived?

Politicians have corrupted and citizens too have favored

Easy ill gotten money plays part with fragrance and flavor

who would not want to become rich and famous?

Leading lavish life with style and look so glamorous

Death sentence can’t be implemented for simple reason

Wrong move for computation of term for person tried under treason
Still some of us praise the system and sing for liberty

How can it grow amidst the illiteracy and poverty?

Nothing can l change under the light and sun

we will tear it apart by making mockery and fun

Streets will have deserted look under the shadow of gun

People may seek refuge under constant fear and run

Such may be the scene in coming days
You will be caught in cross fire in strange ways

You will have no high hope in bright rays

It may be altogether different if we don’t pay (attention)

No one should be deprived of his/her legitimate dues

System should not be meant for only few

Why is it so that only influential get scoot free

Why other have to sit recite the hymns under the tree?

Let holy principles of justice be upheld

Let innocents be not prosecuted and held

It may or can have legitimate delay
This may send the message across and relay
