“Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:
– I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
– I shall fear only God.
– I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.
– I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
– I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.” ― Benjamin Franklin

Little thieves are hanged but great ones escape. – 14th Century French Proverb

our sense of justice is warped

we ve turned justice upside down

don’t you worry

we are learners jo

we are work in progress.


you wait , when we become expert

the haves will enjoy

the have-nots will disappear

who needs them anyway?

don’t bother at all

our sense of justice is in progress.


the societal vulnerable may

do without existence

do we care at all?

are we not belle-full ?

do we care about others?

are our social justice not



can we get any good thing out

from a neophyte?

aren’t we apprentices ?

how do you expect us to be masters

in social justice?


don’t you know we are

work in progress?

where have you seen learners

becoming masters same day?


One thought on “work in progress(xiii)

  1. Hmm, this is great.we are really work in progress. What a satire. To me, this rheroical poem is a kind of political poemsthat talks about the ill health of the high placed politicians who feel less concern about the masses.
    Truly, looking at the situation of justice in our society, it is only the lower class people that are being brought to book, and we have the people that have embezzled more freed from theither offence.is think it is high time all thelse social injustices stopped and we all enjoye democracy as it should.
