Mercy

Seemingly, it takes the event of a tragedy before action sees apparency 
I can't, won't get involved, don't involve me...
Lacking voluntary involvement is the act of cowards interned 
The lack thereof  the unscrupulous will be burned
Whomsoever society dictates into the law 
Feeds an appetite and not flavoring chaw
Twenty-eight statutes the "Three-strikes Law,"
Ill will or misinterpretation puts nonviolent offenders into categorical 
nightmares removing constitutional rights for a lifetime 
One can not wonder why imprisonment interns cowards!
The best law is the simplest, "an eye for an eye."
