RE: Fiat iustitia, et pereat mundus || may justice for groups, never deny it for individuals - a poetic interpretation
Tru ... beautifully written!
Those last two stanzas where you break into Verse ... are perfect. I re-read them 6-7 times. Not only is your poetic craft itself excellent, but the imagery is extremely potent.
Grew tall the cowering conscience of the captured souls
Unbridled bats defiled returning to our honoured cove
Dividing scraps with greasy hands, red loot-soiled sand ...
Very well done, old friend.
I vote this poem as No.1 for Daily Dose.
