The Court

A place where justice reigns
A place where the defenseless are defended
A place of refuge for the worthless
A place of succor for the hopeless
A place where it is either black or white
A place where the criminals are given suitable judgment
To make the a correct and good citizens of the nation
That will uphold the noble cause of the country
You can't be there and remain the same
It's either you are justified or condemned
If you do it right, expect justification
If otherwise, expect condemnation.

Police are your friends
They work hand in hand with the Court
live right and you will not be blamed.

The lawyers also are your friends
if You feel jilted, consult them
to escape injustice,run to them.

The Judges are your friends too
We love you citizens because we are also part
but we detest evil with it's deeds
because we will always give you a charge
a charge to live for the rest of your life
to reverse all the evil you have done
to reverse the day you did it
failure to do so, you will face a big query
And can that be possible?
Live right and live long.
O the court! thank you so much.

The reader's breath and hearing embody the poet's words. This makes the art physical, intimate, vocal, and individual. This is about as close as the sound of poetry comes to advancing a theory poetics, and it is only by way of brisk introduction to what emerges as an invigorating session of talking shop.

And again, there should be a second reading to edit some lines like: "Police are (you) friends" it should be (your)
