WEEP for Justice: R.I.P.


WEEP for Justice:  R.I.P.

To Mrs. Hawa Timol:

Weep mother,

For the fruit of your love

Fallen from the tree of stone,

Weep for the earth

That caught his blood,

And for those who dig the grave;

Weep for your child

And for his people,

Above all,

Weep for the shattered

Fragment called JUSTICE

Crushed beneath the jackboot
