It is rare that we hear the truth from leaning liars,
and we find ourselves assigned apologies that are
spun and woven as spider’s webs to placate and push
away critics and the fearful future of resignations.
It is rare that we hear of poverty on the agenda
of the wealth driven economies of the wide world,
and so they wallow, wreathed in smiles, trading
joy for the piercing the pain of the prevalent poor.
It is rare that the rapist is prosecuted and their
violated victim able to see right justice visited,
and proper judgements meaning a perpetrator
is behind prison bars of civilised sentencing.
It is rare that royalty faces the full force of
the law and paedophile’s are held to account,
wealthy or poor, public or private, halted for
each vulnerable child deserves to live safely.
It is rare that we find good overcoming evil,
as vice, calumny and cruelty are newsworthy
but the good is oft interred and the efforts of
hard working folk is the quiet grace of God.
