JUSTICE OR INJUSTICE







JUSTICE OR INJUSTICE


  


The punishment should always fit the crime
So make sure the offender does their time
Or the victim will be left feeling aggrieved
Knowing they`ve been let down and deceived.

....Justice....
....Injustice....


Sometimes we have to become the sleuth
In order for us to get to the truth,
We demand `justice` it`s only fair
`Cause those that wronged us just didn`t care.

....Justice....
....Injustice....


An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth
This is what we`d like, I speak the truth,
But the do-gooders always step in
When this happens `injustice` does then begin.

....Justice....
....Injustice....


It`s not the real world these people live in
Or they`d make the offender pay for their sin,
It`s us the common people that pay the price
For the do-gooders trying to be ever so nice.

....Justice....
....Injustice....


You need to experience crime first-hand
Until such a time you`ll not understand
Why our cry for `justice` has to be heard
And the fight should go on undeterred.

....Justice....
....Injustice....


If the punishment does not fit the crime
The victim is then failed every time,
`JUSTICE` Where is the `justice` in this?
This is what I call an `INJUSTICE`.
