An Announcement

Poem By RIC BASTASA

he has
an announcement
to make

he has one
thing to say

lady justice
is still working
in his country

even without
the cooperation
of the majority
of those
whose robes
remain
blacker than
ever

the people
have not spoken
yet
but there is
rejoicing
from their
hearts

the need to walk
in the streets
is dispensed with

the cheat and
the liar
the corrupt
and the
dishonest
has finally
fallen

'bad karma!
bad karma! '
the islands are
shouting

the sea is calm
the night is cold
joy is jumping

that beautiful face seemingly should not have been yours
it does not fit
