Let justice flow

Justice rolls on

she is not rocked.

She is like a river

and flows over

even the rocks of despair

and hatred

and bitterness.
Righteousness streams past

the boulders of brash bombast

to whirl in eddies of empathy

with those who,

ignored

isolated

then blamed

and banned

and battered

and betrayed

are bewildered by silent prophets.
Water cannot be stopped.

Water bubbles up from deep wells

within.

It is a gift.
But water as justice and righteousness cannot be tasted by all

even though it is offered to all.

Some have mouths so full

of sound and fury

there is no room for water

or mercy

or justice

or righteousness.

To those, the one who offers an eternal supply says:

“I will spit you out of my mouth.”

Amos 5:24 But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!
