But where is justice for the oppressed and the homeless?
By Terry Lowenstein / Charlotte, North Carolina
Tuesday, June 2, 2009

raptorial kangaroo courts
 
the walrus and the ostrich
converse on the way of man
seasonal equinox
a burden to his plan
yesterday’s migrations
lost in confetti news
as schedules are no longer
yours and mine to choose
molted are the costumes
and flightless are the days
when raptorial kangaroo courts
feign interest in the strays
 

hidden tents
 
beyond the superstore
canvas replaces walls
hidden from the cameras
and gone with morning dew

I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand. —Susan B. Anthony, American suffragist
