“JUSTICE FOR JOSHUA* THE JEW!” a poem, dedicated to: HIM! on Wednesday 23 April 2019! a.k.a.: “Imagine!!” a.k.a.: “Stop In The Name of Love!?”

IMAGINE YOU! Playing-“cops,” as-you-did, as-a-kid yesterday!
Imagine YOU, after-“growing-up?” You-have-a cock-sure sway,
And-decide-to-attend one of the Police Academy Schools,
Graduating! AFTER-you’ve learned-ALL-THE-RULES!?

You get a “smart” uniform, and-there’s-a-glint-in-your-eye;
You marry your “childhood sweetheart,” having kids by-and-by,
And you soon get “transferred” – to a little West Texas town,
Being-told-to “keep the peace” &-use “reasonable force” when holding a suspect down!

Then – IMAGINE ONE DAY, A “DRIFTER” COMES AROUND,
And gets in a little trouble, as he yells, with-a BIG sound!
And, when you approach him, he yells – even more,
DISTURBING THE PEACE! So, you wrestle him to the floor,
And he struggles a lot, so you “beat him” a bit,
To shut him up – and so – in restraints you can get,
HIM! Yet, he struggles more and yells LOUD, very upset,
And you HAVE TO toss him in County Jail, knowing it’s a “safe bet,”
That, since he’s pretty “smart” and wants JUSTICE TO PREVAIL,
That he might just STUDY UP!? in! – or-out of jail!

So, imagine you don’t like Him; you-wish-he’d-go-away,
For you’ve MANY “tough” hombres, you gotta deal with every day,
But MOST of them realize – that they might-a been “outta line,”
So, about their arrests? They’re-probably NOT gonna “whine!”

BUT, “THIS” GUY – HOLDS A GRUDGE – AND WANTS A FULL HEARING!
Now, imagine YOU’RE HIM,
[For-it-is-YOURSELF! Upon-whom you’re-really-peering!?]

NOW! Imagine YOU-have-approached – some silly lawyer guy,
And-he’s-suggested, “Why-don’t-you-drop-it?” giving THIS WHY:
“Because law enforcement is seldom restrained!
Cops do what they THINK is reasonable, even-if-suspects-are-PAINED,
By repeated blows! to subdue EVEN an unarmed man!
THE PUBLIC SUPPORTS THE LOCAL SHERIFF (usually) – Is-it-some-Divine-Plan?” NO! NO! [It] Can’t be! That’s ABSURD, for “God” won’t do such stuff?
GOD’S ALWAYS FAIR! Isn’t-SHE!? Yet, JUSTICE CAN BE ROUGH!?!?

Yet, I don’t believe in God, so, sometimes (or often) MIGHT IS RIGHT,
And police officers will simply patrol – PA-TROL! throughout the night,
And “mess up” some people – Yeah! Perhaps too much!
NOW! Imagine again! That YOU’RE THAT LAWYER, as such,
And you realize – (Oh, yeah!) Every system of LAW – has its “faults?”
& DIRTY ROTTEN SECRETS – ARE SOMETIMES STUFFED AWAY IN VAULTS!
And imagine, as this lawyer, you are skeptical and callous,
After having practical(?) experience? regarding forgive-ness and malice!

Yes, IMAGINE YOU – IN ALL THESE ROLES!
A COP! A LAWYER! An INDIGENT – with-conflicting-goals!
Just SIMPLY PERFECT, as you-all can be,
SEEKING – for your individual, little piece(s) of Heaven, CAN ANY OF YOU SEE?

That: Life might end TOMORROW! Yeah, sure! Do what-you-wanna-do-TODAY!!!!
Or! What you CAN do! Now (if you want) LISTEN TO WHAT I SAY:
“We’re ALL in a drama – of cops, robbers and BUMs,
TRYING TO GET BY! We MOSTLY – suck our thumbs!”

And, finally, Josh[ua], imagine-you’re-GOD! Many people like-to;
NOW, what is it YOU’LL-say UNTO YOU?
To The Cop: “Good job! Thanks for keeping The Peace!”
To The Lawyer: “Don’t SOB! Justice will never cease,
And it’ll-NEVER-die! It-just smells-like-it!”

And – to THE BEATEN INDIGENT, “God” might offer this bit:
“I’m SOOOOO sorry – you got beaten upon,
And I REALLY HOPE – all your SELF-respect – isn’t gone!
Anyway, I’m sorry! MY FAULT! My ‘bad,’ I guess,
A lotta people around here – get beat and killed, but-I’ll-STILL-bless,
Efforts-for-PEACE REVENGE and-JUSTICE, but-never-enough! 🙂 -Mmm!
Yet, I STILL BLESS THEM ALL – in The Name of Lou[v]f!
