I feel like this might be a longer piece that was edited to just one stanza, at any rate those 4 lines convey an entire depth of thought, and emotion that pack a literary punch.
Her bandage hides two festering sores.... truth expressed in sarcasm.. tony
Her bandages hide two festering sores. Experience with justice is bitter for many. No doubt. Lucky are the ones not caught in its blind paws.
Justice! ! Only with the eyes of the truth. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Justice is the Future in the constant present, Past.
Justice is just a word with out actions? It generally only applies to those that can afford it!
So nice with a great message. Loved it.

An interesting fresh way to describe that blindness! ! I
How powerful a message in so short a verse.
a sweeping statement indeed and hardly just by any definition.
One-eyed justice has seen all. None are specifically excluded.
Eyes or no eyes or anything, justice never sees who is to fair to all!
blind the biased eyes and judge the world equally

Wonderful poem! Langston Hughes has given justice for justice.
Powerful poem about a strong subject. Injustice is the only justice lots of black people know. Great Poem.
