The gavel called for order,
and the arguments went back and forth,
each lawyer better than the last.
The objections were called out,
and overruled or sustained.
Next dates announced at the end of a tedious day,
and on that day the dance began again.
Like caverns challenging each other to blink,
or two flames trying to put out each other.
Justice wears her blindfold proudly,
as Russian roulette goes on with an empty gun.
Stalemate, no winners, just losers,
and the loser is the family
of the man who was murdered.
