Misconception Of Justice

Justice
An ideal of protection
One meant to help
Not hinder a being
A term widely misused
A ruler’s tool
A priest’s excuse
A tyrant’s delight
Misused by those
Not needing it
A peasant’s crop
A merchant’s life
A man’s dignity
Results of this misuse
A man’s life gone
Misunderstood, misused
Such a simple thing
Drowns a world
Once loved
